Director Baz Luhrmann will take the Jazz Age into the modern age now that reports have been confirmed that he'll shoot his version of "The Great Gatsby" in 3-D.
As Marquee reported last month, Luhrmann said he had workshopped the project in 3-D but hadn't yet committed to using the technology. Now, a deal has been struck to shoot "Gatsby" in 3-D in Sydney, Australia, writes the Hollywood Reporter.
The film will star Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway and Carey Mulligan as shallow Daisy Buchanan. Mulligan is said to have beat out actresses Keira Knightley, Blake Lively and Scarlett Johansson for the coveted role.
Pre-production on Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" is set to begin next month, with shooting slated to start in August.
Do you think the movie should get the 3-D treatment?
