It had been previously rumored that Baz Luhrmann‘s upcoming adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby was going to puzzlingly be in 3D. Now this has been confirmed, so expect to see at least one scene of Leo DiCaprio as Gatsby playing paddle ball directly into the camera.
Also, Luhrmann is going to shoot The Great Gatsby in Australia, not New York City, the actual city where the book famously takes place. This isn’t because Luhrmann wishes to have kangaroos drinking gin and tonics in his version (although that would be adorable), but because the state government in Sydney lobbied hard for the designation, which will inject a ton of money into the economy there. Maybe after getting all that money Sydney will try to change its name and forget about its past. (via The Hollywood Reporter)
