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 role of Daisy requires a lot of subtle acting. I don’t see Blake being able to do that.

I think Blake and Leo will look cute together onscreen.

@gatsby:

Look cute together on screen? I think they’re aiming for something a little better than a Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy with this one. You don’t get Leonardo DiCaprio to go out and make a cute, brainless date movie.

hmm since Blake was meeting with the director and crew it looks like Blake has a big chance of getting the part.

As much as I enjoy both of these actors, nobody can outdo Robert Redford and Mia Farrow in the original version of this film. The film was elegant and beautiful and it’s one of my favorites.

I love the Great Gatsby story and I sincerely hope that Luhrmann doesn’t butcher it like most of today’s Hollywood remakes end up getting butchered.

i love Blake!! I hope she gets it… I think she already did.

@JC:

Blake rules deal with it. They will have a great on screen presence.

@gatsby:
Okay. You’re 12. I get it now.

Blake Lively?! now that’s a laugh. I guess ol Baz is gonna camp up The Great Gatsby.

US WEEKLY is in no position to be talking about casting. Who the he ll do they think they are?

Mia FArrow RUINED The Great Gatsby that why the remake is happening.

I like her but they need a better actress for this movie.

Natalie Portman is better choice.

Hell to the Naw ! What about Emily Blunt ?!

No to Lively, Amanda Seyfreid. Not thrilled with Scarlett Johanssen or Rebecca Hall, either. I like Michelle Williams, but not for this part. Natalie Portman is my choice of the actors mentioned for Daisy so far.

Speaking of Leo movies, the Chicago Sun-Times had this background info on Devil in the White City. It looks like it already has a director and he’s raring to go. I wonder if Leo is really going to shoot three movies next year? I suppose this is what he meant when he said he wanted to focus on his work and not miss out on any opportunities!

Blake would be perfect for Daisy. i’m excited for this remake!!

leo is too ugly for Gatsby. Gatsby is supposed to look sophisticated not a disgusting slob like Leo.

Doesn’t blake already have the role? It sorta seems this way if she’s going to dinner with everybody involved with the movie…….

i guess we’ll find out if she got it in a couple weeks. I like Blake and i think she’ll do great!

I always thought if anyone on that show had a chance at making it..it would of been Leighton :(

@GG:

Blake seems to be making a good career for herself outside of Gossip Girl. She has great potential..
Not everyone can transition well from tv…

noooooo , me dont like ! they are plenty actresses more talented than Lively …

Blake will make a gorgeous Daisy…. now Leo… i’m not sure Leo can pull off Gatsby…

The talent that is getting Blake roles has nothing to do with her acting.

She has the look for Daisy ,hope she can act

Daisy was supposed to be around Gatsby’s age? I like Amanda Seyfried and in the role but she’s too young. Why not Kate Hudson who proved in Alomst Famous she could act? Blake is crap we know she gets these high profile roles because it’s not her acting!
