The Great Gatsby … in 3D?
Now it’s just getting ridiculous.
The oft-adapted F. Scott Fitzgerald book The Great Gatsby is coming back to the big screen . . . and Leonardo DiCaprio is going to be in 3D.
The new film, which co-stars Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan (she reportedly beat out Blake Lively, Scarlett Johansson and Keira Knightley for the role of Daisy Buchanan), is one of many in a long line of adaptations.
The Great Gatsby was formerly a movie in 1926, 1949, 1974, 2000 and 2002 (if you want to count the loosely-adapted G). Set in the early 1920s, the story revolves around recent Yale graduate Nick Carraway (Maguire), who becomes the next-door-neighbor to the very wealthy Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio).
And, it’s going to be in 3D. The 3D treatment is fine for your effects-driven action films and kid-friendly comedies, but a dramatic period piece based on famous literature? We’re trying hard to reserve judgment -- after all, Leo DiCaprio is in the lead.
