Well, what we did think was going to happen by giving the keys to The Great American Novel to Baz Luhrmann, holder of a masters in Cinematic Spectacle & Kitsch? He takes the material and guns the engine like Jay Gatsby himself at the wheel of his beloved yellow 1929 Duesenberg.

When we think of Quentin Tarantino we think of genres and the way he melds them together, often directly referencing (if not openly ripping off) his favorite films, into oddly sincere pastiches. Yet in his last couple of movies, Q.T., master imitator, has gone and become a kind of Avenging Angel.
Apparently, one cause that Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Tom Hardy feel strongly about is animal poaching. THR reports that the trio of Hollywood stars are looking to produce an untitled drama for Warner Bros. which would center on animal trafficking.
Recently at a Manhattan club, Kanye West rolled in and commandeered the club’s sound system to spin a new track all about his special lady friend, Kim Kardashian. But what most interests Nick is a member of Kanye’s entourage: Leonardo DiCaprio.
The first official pictures from Quentin Tarantino‘s Django Unchained have been released and they look stunning! Take a look at Django (Jamie Foxx) and Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) walking down Main Street as well as Calvin Candie (Leonardo DiCaprio) being up to no good after the jump.

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 for a December 25th, 2012 and Celebuzz (via Collider) has a bunch of excellent set pictures that show Leonardo DiCaprio (Gatsby), Carey Mulligan (Daisy) and Tobey Maguire (Carraway) looking great in their costumes.
It’s a shame, really, that a man as fascinating as J. Edgar Hoover is reduced to a prolonged, cinematic snooze. Clint Eastwood merely plays hopscotch with his life, aimlessly bouncing around from topic to topic, and along the way forgetting the purpose of his film.
