I think I will have the greatest birthday gift on June 2012, as it will be the release date of one of the greatest novel in history, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Wonderful choice of casts too, I can’t believe it has so many of my fave actors, from Leonardo Di Caprio as the charming Jay Gatsby ( who else with such persona to play as a young, mysterious millionaire?), the darling beauty with a wit Isla Fisher as Myrthe Wilson, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and….. ( I really didn’t expect she would be the chosen one) the cute, smart, hypnotizing Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan! She is the reason why I watched ‘An Education’ more than three times… Doesn’t she look like someone who stepped out directly from 1920s era ?
The movie itself will have a setting in Australia, and rumoured to be in 3D. I can’t really imagine how a 1920s era movies will turn out in 3D though..but we’ll see. In the meantime, I think I will re-read the novel and play these images in my head =).
The filming, we’ll see the remake of these:
By these new casts =) :
