Baz Luhrmann WILL Direct The Great Gatsby

baz luhrmann will direct the great gatsby

This is GREAT news!

Last week, we were disappointed to hear that Baz Luhrmann was having second thoughts about directing The Great Gatsby, but now it looks like he will in fact stay on project!

Warner Bros is currently in talks to finance and take on worldwide distribution of Gatsby, and sources say that WB wanted to be "in business" with Luhrmann.

We're really happy to hear this! As long as Baz veers away from Australia territory and shows us the directing skillz he used on Moulin Rouge! and Strictly Ballroom, we're sure we won't be disappointed.

Do U think Baz will do Gatsby justice?

    Baz. Just say NO to Nicole Kidman if you want a quality project. Got it.

    I liked Australia. And the Moulin Rouge approach would hardly work with Gatsby.

    this man is a terrible director whose work gets progressively worse, not better…the great gatsby is hard enuf to capture on film (please see the previous attempts that were failures)….this quintisential american story needs an american director who understands class structure in this society…the book is loaded with symbolism and needs a genius of film to translate to the screen…how about scorcese or fincher?…..
