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.

The Great Gatsby… I CAN’T WAIT.

The novel is so awesome and Leonardo DiCaprio is just as awesome!

too young, be better with someone closer to Leo’s age

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= fake boobs, fake hair, fake nose, bad acting

# 7

I love the book. Hopefully the movie will be just as great.

# 8

terrible photo. Leo looks like a bulldog and Blake looks at least 35

# 9

I would prefer Amanda as Daisy. Blake would make a good Jordan i my opinion

lol great that Leo and Baz are getting this Gatsby project moving!! It’s not for certain that Blake got the part but she sure seems like a strong contender!!

That is a horrible picture of Leo…. his face looks old and bloated..

She’s the worst actress ever!
Please, don’t!

@Kirsten: y
yes i hope the movie is really good. They have alot of pressure on their hands but i’m sure Baz and leo will do a great job!!

leo is oldddddddddd

I don’t think Blake should be Daisy!

Blake looks wayyyyy older than 23.. wth??

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.

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.

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.

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

No, please, no Blake Cheater Lively. that ho.

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

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. =/
