So I collaborate with other bloggers to run Page to Premiere. A site dedicated to upcoming films based on books. It gives you any news, trailers, casting, articles, etc. One of our collaborators reported about a new version of Gatsby starring Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby and Carey Mulligan as Daisy. To top it off the director of the film is none other than Baz Luhrmann! Director of Moulin Rouge! (one of my favorite musicals), Romeo&Juliet starring Claire Daines as Juliet and Leonardo DiCaprio as Romeo, and Australia.
Now you're asking yourself who is playing the main character and narrator of The Great Gatsby? Tobey Maguire was cast as Nick Carraway. To me it seems like a decent cast. The film is set to be released in 2012.
You can read all the articles/interviews:

I'll be anticipating this one for months!
