It seems that Baz Luhrmann is having some second thoughts about directing an adaptation of The Great Gatsby. Here's what the director had to say on Saturday at the Directors Guild of America Awards in Los Angeles:
"I have got to make a decision in three days' time, whether to do it or not."
The director owns the rights to the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, and he has already cast Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan in the three leading roles. Baz Luhrmann also said he has been workshopping the project with his cast, but it seems there are still some issues to be worked out:
"I think I've been a bit shaded out because I want everything to be perfectly positioned on it."
