Luhrmann to possibly remake The Great Gatsby in 3-D
on Tuesday,January 11,2011 20:01
The first big film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby was applauded by critics when it was released in 1974, but director Baz Luhrmann has announced that he wants to try to make a bigger splash by creating his own version in the near future.
Recently, the Moulin Rouge director announced that he has definitive interest in filming his adaptation of the classic in 3-D. Alongside Oliver Stone and Michael Mann at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Luhrmann spoke of the benefits of Blu-ray.
"The power of Blu-ray is so great, you have to be a bit conscious about misusing it," Luhrmann told Talk Movies World.
The director is known for pushing the envelope with big budget films, and experts believe that the possibility of creating The Great Gatsby is not out of the question. However, Stone warned during the same convention that not all films are meant to be created an eye-popping fashion.
"Don't shoot a 3-D movie unless you can afford it, otherwise you are putting yourself under enormous pressure," Stone told The Hollywood Reporter.
Thus far, Luhrmann has yet to make a decision on the movie.
