Blake Lively & Leonardo DiCaprio: Great Gatsby Dinner Date!

Looks like Blake Lively and Leonardo DiCaprio may be teaming up for the movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby!

The two actors shared dinner with director Baz Luhrmann and his crew at NYC’s The Lion on Tuesday (November 2), according to reports.

Baz is set to bring F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic book to the big screen with Leo reportedly playing the lead as Jay Gatsby.

Though Amanda Seyfried was rumored to be given the role of Daisy Buchanan, Blake is “being strongly considered,” reports Us Weekly.

    I think Us Weekly relies on publicists for a lot of their stories, and this one looks like it came from Blake’s. ;) Nikki Finke / Deadline Hollywood already said Blake is in the running, but I wouldn’t put her ahead of anyone else. She looks the part, but if a bigger name movie actress wants the part, she probably doesn’t stand a chance.

    Blake is grabbing at straws…she was terrible in the Town and is horrible on Gossip Girl…she prob had to screw Harvey Weinstein to get that meeting…ugh. Hopefully Natalie Portman will get the part

    horrible pic of leo. He looks like he is pushing 50 and has a horrible squinting problem. His girlfriend Bar Refaeli is way too hot for him. Leo got lucky lol.

    Natalie Says:

    Why does Blake look like a 40 year old woman in that picture?! Anyway, I don’t think she’s that great of an actress to play such a role. Stick to Gossip Girl, please!

    I’m very excited for this movie. I like all of Baz Lurmann’s movies so i think he will do a great job on this.

    JC Says:

    She’s hot but I don’t know if she’s right for this. They need a more acclaimed actress who won’t be blown off the screen trying to act opposite DiCaprio.

    Sian Says:

    Leo will do an awesome job on this movie!! He is the best actor of his generation!

    What an exciting movie project. I wish all the luck to Blake for getting the part!

    brooke Says:

    The Great Gatsby is my favorite book! I cannot wait for the new version. Blake is the perfect choice for Daisy – I hope she gets it over Amanda! Leo would suck a Gatsby though! I’m disappointed in that pick. There’s no way he can outdo Redford’s Gatsby. =/
