the great gatsby
Carey Mulligan is playing Daisy Buchanan in the latest film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. I am so thrilled! The photo above was taken when she auditioned for the role in New York. Isn't she stunning? I really loved her performance in An Education and I can already picture her in 1920s fashion with all those gorgeous drop-waist dresses and fancy hats.
Also, Leonardio diCaprio will play Jay Gatsby and Tobey Maguire is the narrator Nick Carraway. I'm not so sure about Leo as the enigmatic Gatsby but he's proven me wrong quiet a number of times so I hope he will nail this role. Filming has reportedly started this month and the movie is set to be released in 2012.
What do you guys think of this cast? Are you a F. Scott Fitzgerald fan?
