Nobody said adapting The Great Gatsby would be easy. Baz Luhrmann has never been one to back down from an ambitious project and there’s no doubt that he’s been working overtime to bring the classic novel to theaters. However, he ignored the golden rule. No running on set.
While filming in cramped quarters just before Christmas, Luhrmann struck his head while passing beneath a camera crane. He hit the weights that balance the arm and cracked his head open as a result. Three stitches later, he’s fine but shooting was shut down early before the holiday break, giving Leonard DiCaprio more time to hang out on yachts with insanely hot women. I wish him a speedy recovery, though it’s likely nothing hurts him as bad as the reception of Australia did. (THR)
