The Great Gatsby: Leonardo DiCaprio Begins Filming

by at . Comments

F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary classic The Great Gatsby is heading to the big screen once again, courtesy of Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann. After Robert Redford filled the Gatsby shoes in 1974, we cannot think of a more perfect choice in the new version to don the dapper look of the 1920s than Leonardo DiCaprio. Luhrmann and DiCaprio have begun principal photography this week on The Great Gatsby which means we’re ever closer to a first look!

3-D seems a little overboard...then again, after seeing Inception I'm excited to see Gatsby. Had to read it over the summer for a class, it was a good book but took too long to get into the story. I think DiCaprio will fil Gatsby's shoes perfectly.

I'd rather see the movie NOT made in 3D. Not everything needs to be in 3D. I'm kind of upset by the fact that it will be filmed like that though. So excited to see it, regardless!

I love all F. S. Fitzgerald’s stories and Gatsby is my favourite character ever.. The 20's era was probably the best time for depicting humans (still fresh wounds of the First World War, women' emancipation becoming more and more visual and a general beginning of modern times as we like to think of them today).. I just hope 'The Strange Case of B. Button' and Gatsby won't be the only works of this author seen on the big screen and we'll have the chance of seeing more film adaptations of Fitzgerald's literary work because, in my opinion, they're definitely worth it..
