Baz Luhrmann’s 3D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is officially happening and we have photographic proof! Stuck in development hell for over three years, the film is currently shooting in Sidney, Australia for a December 25th, 2012 and Celebuzz (via Collider) has a bunch of excellent set pictures of the stars looking great in their costumes.
Leonardo DiCaprio (Jay Gatsby) was looking handsome wearing a white suit on Friday while the lovely Carey Mulligan (Daisy Buchanan) was rocking a violet dress and Tobey Maguire (Nick Carraway) a green sweater.
If you are unfamiliar with the classic novel, here is a short synopsis that should enlighten you:
“The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
