Gatsby is Great!!




Just read that Baz Luhrmann is planning to remake THE GREAT GATSBY, and I'm psyched!

It's one of my favorite books ever, I've read it a gazillion times!

Now, who do you think should be cast as Jay, Daisy, and Nick  . . .???

This movie could make F. Scott Fitzgerald the new Jane Austen!

I'm stumped on Gatsby, but I could see Adrian Brody as Nick, and someone very blonde--Naomi Watts, maybe--as Daisy.

Lamia- Viva F. Scott!!!

Trish- Awesome choices!!! Can't wait to see who gets it!

That is too cool!!! Where did you get your hands on this info??? Love that book, I read it last year in my junior english class.

Oh that news makes me happy!:) I loved that book when I read it in high school (one of the few required reading books I actually enjoyed) and I adore all of Baz Luhrman's movies. This would be a match made in heaven!

Hey Iserr- Junior year . . .that's about the same time I read it too! And I've read it several times since . . .

Oh, and I found the info here:

Hey Green Bean- I totally agree! I think/hope he'll do it justice!

I love THE GREAT GATSBY! :)

I've ALWAYS pictured P.Diddy/Puff Daddy as the Gatsby. :) Even when I re-read the book a few years ago, I kept picturing him.

Hey Keri- Wow, didn't think of that- but I can see your point!

Don't know how I'd cast it, but I know Daisy should be someone blond and filmy.

Hey Amy- I like Trish's idea of Naomi Watts! She's def blonde and filmy!
