The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald is one of the most well known books of all time. It’s long needed an adaptation thats … at least decent.
Baz Luhrmann’s version of the novel may be the best thing we get. Unless a Martin Scorsese version ever happens, thanks to Entourage for that wet dream.
In the real version there’s no sign of Vincent Chase. Instead, Tobey Maguire and Leonardo DiCaprio play the leads in this 1920s story. Maguire is Nick Caraway and DiCaprio plays Jay Gatsby. Carey Mulligan will play Daisy Buchanan, love of Gatsby and wife of Tom Buchanan. Joel Edgerton will play Buchanan. Jason Clarke played George Wilson, who was betrayed by his wife Myrtle, played by Isla Fisher. Myrtle and Buchanan are also having an affair.
