Will Baz Luhrmann’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ Be In 3D?
  |  @   |  

For those who are not aware, yes, Baz Luhrmann, the director behind visually stunning musicals like Moulin Rouge! and beloved story re-imaginings like Romeo + Juliet, is working on a new adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald‘s classic novel, The Great Gatsby.

The movie is currently set to star Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, and Tobey Maguire with hopes for release at some point in 2012, but it was something that Luhrmann said at the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas that has eyebrows raising the world ’round.

Luhrmann said that though no official decision has been made, he has “workshopped” Gatsby using 3D technologies and that he might ultimately decide to create his version of the story about glitz and glam and bootlegging during post World War I Prohibition in the roaring 1920s.

The use of 3D still remains yet to be seen, of course, but it will truly be interesting to see how fans of this classic American story and purists react if Luhrmann decides to make the movie using the hit-and-miss technology.

What do you think; knowing Baz Luhrmann’s wild and visual style, could 3D work in a new adaptation of The Great Gatsby?
