It's a mixed bag of news for Baz Luhrmann and his loyal Luhrmannites!
The good? Warner Bros announced today they plan to release The Great Gatsby on May 10, 2013!
Sweeet! We can't wait to watch Leonardo DiCaprio channel his inner-Robert Redford when he plays the role of America's favorite self-made millionaire, Jay Gatsby, on the big screen!
The bad news? A long, long time before any of us were born, the Mayans predicted the world might end December 21, 2012!
Whoops! The studio might really regret pushing back their opening date!
Assuming the Earth's clock keeps right on ticking through the year's end, we are absolutely stoked to watch Leo, Tobey Maguire, and the affable Carey Mulligan's adaptation of this literary classic!
