F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is an established literary classic, so it only makes sense that it should be filmed in senses-shattering 3D. Director Baz Luhrmann has supposedly conceived his adaptation of the novel in 3D and is making the decision now on whether it will actually be a Movie of the Future or an instantly obsolete 2D “flattie.” So it may indeed be possible that we will be seeing gin and tonics flying off the screen and into the faces of audiences worldwide very soon! I’d make some more jokes about a 3D Great Gatsby but I’ve never read it and my girlfriend is busy. But suffice it to say that a 3D Gatsby would be one step in the direction prophesied by Jerry Bruckheimer and co., that soon all movies will be in 3D regardless of content. Whether or not audiences will actually pay extra money to see a highfalutin literary adaptation in 3D remains, as they say, to be seen.
