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.

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.

“The barbarities of war are seldom committed by abnormal men. The tragedy of war is that these horrors are committed by normal men in abnormal situations.” — Major J.F Thomas from ‘Breaker’ Morant

“See that bird? That’s the spirit bird. He will always look after you.” — Maud from Rabbit-Proof Fence

Every weekend we pay to see the fruits of the filmmakers’ dreams at the multiplex. Every weekend translates into a cynical game of Russian roulette with our cash. Every weekend there is a chance to fall under their spells and believe all over again. Every weekend there is a chance to truly escape reality for a few hours. Their self-indulgence is a double-edged sword which can either transcend their final vision into unlimited ecstasy or send it crashing to the eternal damnation of the bargain DVD bin at the local Best Buy. Certain films still have a hypnotic power over me, but there are a few that punch me in the gut and send me into another dimension. Werner Herzog knows all too well about the joy and “burden of dreams.”
