GatsbyMoulin Rougue and Australia director Baz Luhrmann has acquired the rights to remake The Great Gatsby, based on the classic Jazz Age novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Luhrmann feels this project is extremely important due to the current economical situation, so it will be a rushed project to try and get it out while the significance is still fully apparent.

Luhrmann explains:

If you wanted to show a mirror to people that says, ‘You’ve been drunk on money,’ they’re not going to want to see it. But if you reflected that mirror on another time they’d be willing to. People will need an explanation of where we are and where we’ve been, and ‘The Great Gatsby’ can provide that explanation.

No time frame on an actual release date or who might be involved, nut knowing Luhrmann’s affinity to the epic-sized movie, even while rushed it will be at least 2-3 years.

The story of The Great Gatsby has been adapted several times for film and TV, starting with a silent film in 1926 film and including a more popular version in 1974 starring Robert Redford and Mia Farrow.
