Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Jay Gatsby?

Leonardo DiCaprio To Play Jay Gatsby?

Leonardo DiCaprio is rumored to be up for the lead in the big screen adaptation of The Great Gatsby.

The 35-year-old Inception star would play Jay Gatsby from the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald novel about life during the roaring 20s, Production Weekly reports on its Twitter page.

Amanda Seyfried has reportedly been considered for the role of Daisy Buchanan, while Tobey Maguire would play Nick Carraway.

Australian director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet) is deciding whether to work on the period piece or direct a different project.

“I’ve got the script for both of them and I’m making that decision in four to six weeks, no longer than six weeks,” he recently told MTV News.

    @75: go and take your meds. nobody talked about bar until you showed up and ruined the thread. sure leo doesn`t want to work with her because they are dating. it has nothing to do with talent or rather lack of it. seriously go and get some help.

    Good choice on actors. they would play really good period roles. They all have the 20s style in them, especially Leo and Amanda….. Tobey… not so much, but I’m sure that if there was an adaptation, he would do well.

    Maybe he’ll cast the redhead he was in Vegas with yesterday. missed that didn’t ya? some sand faced israeli with a thick accent who can’t act in a real movie- Leo would cut off his foot before. He doesnt want to be seen walking down the street with the rat, never mind a Hollywood picture. But let’s keep the rest of the thread on topic, ok?

    @Ms Bar Jolie Gaga: Leo was with someone else as of yesterday.

    And no he cannot cast a baz luhrmann movie- baz would choke on his script before. If this relationship is sacred to him, hide the host and wine. Sorry just too funny. Doesn’t want to be seen on the same sidewalk with her, never mind same movie. go back to sleep israel!

    Hope the project does get made as Leo would make a great Gatsby.

    He has the talent, looks, charisma, strong screen presence needed for Jay Gatsby

    @Tinkerbell: SORRY to break it for you Tinkersh*t, but Bar is NOT IN ISREAL!!!
    I dont know from where you got it from……
    I am feeling sorry for you if you still keep belive in anything you read. its just childish. but ofcourse, you’ll ALLWAYS belive to what you want to belive. if it was article that saying that Leo and Bar was together, you’ll say that its a lie. you are just PATHETIC!!! but anyway, I think that you are an a lost case, so……

    but fact are fact, and Bar is still in Leo’s life!!!! if you like it or not. hehe

    Ibiza? Now? With Naomi? That would be a breaking news. Naomi spending her time with low cost travellers?. You’re dreaming. The high season is over. Now it’s time for last minutes packages (1 week all inclusive, you pay 4 nights, get the other 3 for free,). Almost time for skiing here in Europe. you know, Gstaad, St Moritz, Cortina… Lol.
    Anyway, Ibiza is really beautiful all the year, just not for VIP population.

    Ms Bar Jolie Gaga Says:

    #87: I don’t HAVE to use aliases because I am not a childish delusional stalker. You girls are so ridiculous. Thinking putting down Leo’s girlfriend will make him leave her for you. LOL. ACCEPT IT. He is with Bar. Done. Period. Accept it. No wonder Leo has extra security. You trolls are psychotic!

    why Says:

    Definitely, the Ibiza pics are NEW:

    IN August LEONARDO DICAPRIO ignored the storm of controversy surrounding NAOMI CAMPBELL to holiday with her.
    Fast forward a couple of months and here he is again with girlfriend BAR REFAELI and Naomi aboard a plush yacht off the coast of Ibiza.

    lol Says:

    @Lisa Rose: The photos were posted on Saturday and on Sunday Leo was seen in London at the airport. How about that? Take it easy and stop ruining this thread with his news/theories about his low-quality gf.
