I can only imagine the spectacular spectacle Baz has in mind with a reported budget of $125M. When I first saw this story (and the pricetag!) on the Hollywood Reporter website, I thought that he was making a musical version. But his innovation this time out is 3D, which doesn't seem like a such great idea for this particular story. I can already see the camera zooming-in through the spectacles of Dr. T.J. Eckleberg. But other than that?
Then again, I was impressed by his take on Shakespeare's overdone R&J (with more than 30 versions on IMDB). So maybe he can surprise us with this remake too. Baz's glittery GATSBY will hit theatres in November 2012 in hopes of catching Oscar's attention.
