According to Muveez, Leonardo DiCaprio has landed the role of Jay Gatsby in Baz Luhrmann’s remake of the famous novel The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I’m also reading reports that Tobey has signed on to play Nick Carraway, the narrator of the story.
I really hope these reports are true as I would love to see Tobey play Nick! If I find an official confirmation, I’ll update as soon as I can!

Baz Luhrmann, the visionary auteur behind Moulin Rouge! and Australia, is gearing up to direct his next project, an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s acclaimed novel The Great Gatsby. According to Deadline, he recently work shopped the screenplay he wrote with Moulin Rouge!‘s Craig Pearce, which saw Leonardo DiCaprio reading as Jay Gatsby and Tobey Maguire reading as Nick Carraway. Luhrmann wants both actors for his movie, but he is not so sure about casting the coveted role of Daisy just yet.
On Baz Luhrmann’s current wish list, he has Keira Knightley, Amanda Seyfried, Blake Lively, Abbie Cornish, Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman, and Scarlett Johansson. Luhrmann will conduct table reads over the course of the next two weeks in New York City to see how each of these actresses plays against Leonardo DiCaprio. It is suspected that some of the above mentioned women will not be able to audition, as most are currently in the midst of shooting their own projects at this time.
The Great Gatsby comes to theaters in 2012. The film is directed by Baz Luhrmann….Source
