Baz Luhrmann To Take On The Great Gatsby

Looks like you will not have to wait another 7 years to see Baz Luhrmann next film as THR has the news that Baz Luhrmann officially acquired rights to "The Great Gatsby,". Luhrmann had this to say on the project:
"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."

He added, "People will need an explanation of where we are and where we've been, and 'The Great Gatsby' can provide that explanation."

He said that he wants to move quickly on the "Gatsby" project. "I'm going to move faster than I have before. I'd be surprised if it's another seven years,"
