luhrmanngreatgatsby-121808The Hollywood Reporter is confirming Nikki Finke’s report that Baz Luhrmann (Australia) has acquired the rights to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby and will quickly move to make the project his next film: “I’m going to move faster than I have before. I’d be surprised if it’s another seven years,” referring to the time period between his last two films Moulin Rouge! and Australia.

“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.”

“People will need an explanation of where we are and where we’ve been, and ‘The Great Gatsby’ can provide that explanation.”
