Baz Luhrmann Explains Gatsby Delay

Baz Luhrmann is hard at work.

Well, he's excited at work anyway.

The Moulin Rouge director recently announced that his film adaptation of The Great Gatsby would be delayed until 2013. So what's the holdup? Baz says:

"I will tell you this, I'm just very nourished by just working on it. I'm just thrilled. Right now I'm working on music. You can imagine how involved I am in the music alone."

Well, if it's going to be that good, we guess we can wait a little longer.

As long as Baz doesn't do anything crazy, like decide to replace Leonardo DiCaprio with Vinny Chase!

    I'm surprised and disappointed you haven't caught on yet - the reason for the delay is that Luhrmann is changing the source material of the movie(!) He finally realized Gatsby doesn't work as a movie and following the Lincoln vampire hunter thing, he decided to change the movie and base it on the mashup novel "The Late Gatsby" instead (Gatsby+vampires = boxoffice $$$) :

    And you guys call yourselves journalists…
