And this cast just keeps on getting and better and better.

Baz Luhrmann is hard at work on his 3D adaptation of The Great Gatsby, already starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan, and we've gotten word that another A-list actor is in talks to join the F. Scott Fitzgerald story if his schedule permits - Ben Affleck!

According to sources, the actor is in the middle of preparations to direct his new film, Argo, but if he can coordinate the details just right, he'll sign on to play Tom Buchanan, the husband of Mulligan's Daisy!

Excellent! We really hope it works out - he'd be PERFECT for the part!

We really have high hopes for this one!

What do U think?? Are U excited for The Great Gatsby??

    Roxi Lurves Baz and can't wait for his latest. Adding Leo, Carey and possibly Ben in the mix and Roxi's in puppy nirvana. Whoowhoowl.

    I've only seen two of Baz's films and didn't care for either one. They have ended up messy with every minor cast member getting a cpl of seconds in the big finale! It detracts from the storyline. He uses big name stars and then wastes their talents by overshadowing with props and effects. He would make a great Ring Master for Barnum and Bailey Circus, IMHO

    Please, no….Just read the book. The book fantastic. The movie with Redford and Farrow was a total bomb. The casting was all wrong and it was a big snooze. Some classics are best left to be read, not watched.
