Of all the 3-D productions that are being lined up right now, the one that has us most intrigued is director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby.
Luhrmann has assembled an impressive cast for the movie, with Leonardo DiCaprio playing the title character of Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Carey Mulligan as Daisy, Gatsby's love interest, Joel Edgerton as Daisy's husband Tom Buchanan, and Isla Fisher as Buchanan's mistress Myrtle. That's a scandalous amount of affairs for a movie based on a 1925 novel written by F. Scott Fitzgerald, but, outside of a sequence toward the book's finale, we can't understand what 3-D will bring to the story. Admittedly, we're curious.
Edgerton, who was the most recent addition to the cast (taking over for Ben Affleck, who had to drop out), updated progress on the Australian production to Collider while doing press for his upcoming MMA drama, Warrior. who else has been cast? >> Posted 08.23.11 by Ryan
