Come on, Baz! We forgive you for Australia! Don't bail on Gatsby now!
Moulin Rouge! director Baz Luhrmann has been attached to direct a film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby for some time, but now it looks like he may exit the project.
According to Baz himself, he will “make a decision in three days’ time."
More from from Baz:
“I think I’ve been a bit shaded out because I want everything to be perfectly positioned on it."
Whatever you need to do to perfectly position everything, get on it Mr. Luhrmann!
You're a fantastic choice for this project, Baz. We're really not sure who else could pull off this project like you.
Do U want to see Baz Luhrmann direct The Great Gatsby? Who do U think would be a good backup option?
