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.

    @Ros@: Lisa Rose is not worth the time responding to – just like the other bar fans. She often forgets her meds that`s obvious! Just ignore her! I hope Leo had a lot of fun in Vegas. Redhead? That`s new? So far there were blondes and brunettes. He sure likes variety!

    Hollywod has really run out of idears. Sad. Like others said, Redford will be hard to beat. Why ?

    Brooke Says:

    ‘The Great Gatsby’ is my favorite book and I LOVED Robert Redford’s version of the movie!
    I personally don’t think Leo is a good choice though. :(

    BORING. DiCaprio is getting worse looking every day. That role takes someone with a little more edge than dweeb.

    It’s nice to see the usual gang here sharing links. Hello to all the Leo-fans. After thinking about this a little during the day, I think that another GG would be nice. It’s a classic American novel that can be revisited with fresh eyes and new perspectives. I don’t think that redoing it would in any way take away from the original, it would only bring a modern understanding and appreciation of the work.

    Ms Bar Jolie Gaga Says:

    Must be sad for a lonely girl to wake up and realize she will always be a computer fan of Leo DiCaprio and never the girlfriend because to be his girlfriend you’d have to have had a Sports Illustrated cover and be a hot girl from Israel. Sad. Team Barleo!

    @Lisa rose: Lisa rose, dahhhhhhrlingggg…those pictures were identified at the source (the photographer/agency) as being from august.

    I worked for photo agencies in ny for 10 years. Part of my job was noticing things like that, getting dates and attributions right. The sun is another gossip rag that gets things wrong all the time. I used to work with the gossip rags too- they would tell me to send them things they could fake all the time for good money- like an eagle taking off with a baby in it’s claws, a baby with a wide forehead so they could airbrush a third eyeball in.

    I am not making this up either.

    So no, they are NOT in Ibiza, and I don’t know where Barfie is but she reiterate she was home. This could be Israel or ny as she does not live in la with Leo as has been lied about before.

    I believe Leo was in Vegas alone for the past couple of days blowing off steam and looking for hoes. There were too many credible witnesses, including two journalists in town for a convention.

    I don’t believe he went to cavalli, – why would he waste his time, and I believe they had lunch ONCE with vd and nc. They left by separate entrances as HE DOES NOT WANT TO BE SEEN WITH HER AS EVERYBODY HATES HER AND HE KNOWS.

    I believe she’s still on his call list but not in his five. Not really.
    I believe they boinked in Paris- not like they haven’t before. They also went to hakaan party and he danced with other women.he went to tag alone!

    I just still think she is a ***** and justice will prevail.

    I do however believe the hotel sighting, and I believe they are still seeing each other, however I think its getting more tenuous than ever.

    It must be sad to be the only fan of Leo and Bar knowing that he’s eating strawberry muffin right now

    lol Says:

    @116: So it`s that what it takes to be his gf? Wearing nearly nothing on a trashy mag cover? Are you sure it`s a good thing? She got that cover like 3 years after they started dating so you are clearly not making any sense … as usual. Barleo? How old are you?

    11th Hour Says:

    Let’s be real. What model wonderland did Leo go to when he had the chance. In NY during the Un conference it was the BRAZILIAN party. The guy has a one track mind and Bar is just a temporary stop on that line.
    Why would Leo go to a Cavalli party? So many of the “featured” models are taken and he can’t flirt with her there. Who else was there? Rachel Bilson – she’s about 4 feet shorter than he likes in a woman. Plus, there’d be press and Leo wants his flirtations on the DL.

    you can try to diss me all you want- to the educated and media savvy you sound very, very stupid. Did you read what they posted up there about Ibiza? It’s off season. People like Naomi Campbell don’t do off-season. Why would they go back? Picture was ided by the photog as AUGUST! who the f knows where she is, who th f cares?

    As for the above, that’s funny. Now he only dates Israelis? What? I tell you if Barfie is Israeli perfection then everyone is Israel is fcuking ug-ly. Because if that is the best you have, the stereotype is trireme Jewish girls are UGLY. certainly all of barfies friends are. Never mind what Barfie would look like without the nose job, implants, dye job, collagen and face lift. I. E. Nothing. I don’t believe Jewish people are ugly but if this is the best you you have then you have a problem.

    apparently all you have to do to be leo’s riend is show up when she is out of town anyway. Been posted everywhere Barfie do you know what a fool you seem like? You ate the laughingstock of the universe. Even ugly Betty got her man.

    I was lookiing at a Spanish newspaper today and all the small town beauty queens from the dr are better than barfola.

    I have a bf who waits on me hand and foot. What for I want Dicaprio for? I don’t want to be waiting around for anyone- I simply refuse to play that game anymore. If I want to talk to my man I just roll over.

    anyway I think Lisa rose=sparkly adi= paid barf liar.

    yeah she’s still in his life- thousands of miles away but still in his life. really, what is the difference between he and barf- she has to follow him around on the internet and he doesn’t take her calls either. I think on anybgiven day we know about as much as she does.

    “honey I’m in Vegas without you. Sure is fun. See ya when I see ya! Lotsa cute girls here. I’m here with keV and the ******* are like flies to honey! See ya soon! ”

    “yah I was hanging with usher last night. Those girls were um, his sisters. Charlize, Stacey, and jayde all say hello!” I’m sure he calls her once a week and updates her.

    Call me tinkershit again and I will use my frequent flier miles go to tel aviv and fcuk your Frankenstein face up.

    Oops, sorry, I didn’t realize someone already did that!

    Must suck to be the ugly girl doing dirty work for the almost (by Israeli standards only) pretty girl. Does she make you wash her panties put too?
    Pick up het dry cleaning? Bet she does.

    lol Says:

    @120: According to Page Six he showed up at the hotel where the party was held but he had no clue it was the after party for the Brazilian event. They even pointed out that he was underdressed. But either way we know he has a taste for Brazilian girls.
    I really don`t care which parties they went together. They do that a lot even after awards shows so him going to the Cavalli party or her going to the Tag Hauer party so what? Nothing unusual. He likes parties that`s obvious he just had one with a redhead. :) There was a sighting from Paris – another after party – where it was said Bar, Naomi and that Russian guy were sitting at a table while Leo was dancing. Romantic!
