    Baz Luhrmann Heads To TV In 2-Year Deal With Sony Pictures Television

    It was set to be a Leonardo DiCaprio showdown come Christmas Day 2012, only a few short months ago. That was before Warner Bros. pushed the DiCaprio-starring adaptation of “The Great Gatsby” back to May 10, 2013. While DiCaprio may still be weeping over the loss of that potentially magnificent doubl...

    Baz Luhrmann Rumored To Be Raising More Money To Shoot 'Gatsby' After WB Turn Him Down

    As already glimpsed in his Kanye-trotting premiere trailer for “The Great Gatsby,” Baz Luhrmann has confirmed his over-exuberant style will remain consistent for his fifth film. Unfortunately, as the Australian filmmaker's filmography has repeatedly shown, a pretty studio penny is al...

    Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' Moved From Christmas Day To Summer 2013

    Take this one right out of the Oscar race folks. While showing off a razzle dazzle trailer earlier this year that matched up Jay-Z beats with Jazz Age glamour, Warner Bros. have decided to shift Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" from a Christmas Day relaese to an unspecified date next ...

    Watch: Heavily Stylized First Trailer For Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby' With Leonardo DiCaprio & Carey Mulligan

    When it was announced that Baz Luhrmann would be directing a film version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby," anyone who knew the Australian director's work sort of knew what to expect. They might not have guessed that he'd make the whole thing in 3D (which he has), but they knew you'd get ...

    We're still seven months away from the year's end, but with the unveiling of trailers for "Skyfall" and "The Master" yesterday, 2013 seems that little bit closer now, doesn't it? Unless the Mayans were right all along, Christmas this year will bring two major film rel...

    First Look: Michael Fassbender And Carey Mulligan In Steve McQueen's 'Shame'

    It's been a flurry of a morning with the awesome Toronto Film Festival line-up being announced. On top of that comes a ton of first looks at films that have been highly anticipated on our part. First up we have quite a few photos of Steve McQueen's "Shame," starring Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan. McQueen last directed Fassbender in "Hunger," a movie about the 1981 hunger strike in Ireland. "Hunger" was Fassbender's first shove into the spotlight, and he's now one of the year's "it" guys, knocking it out of the park in "X-Men: First Class" earlier this summer and getting ready for an awards push as Carl Jung in David Cronenberg's "A Da...

    Baz Luhrmann Casts Joel Edgerton As Tom Buchanan In 'The Great Gatsby'

    The anointment of Joel Edgerton as a freshly minted A-lister looks to be complete. The Australian actor seemed to be on the brink of something for a decade, but 2011 may be the year in which the stars align: his small, but pivotal role in "Animal Kingdom" last year kicked off a string of new gigs, including the male lead in the prequel/reboot/preboot of "The Thing," opposite Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the co-lead opposite Jennifer Garner in "The Odd Life of Timothy Green," and starring across from Tom Hardy in MMA drama "Warrior," a film that's picked up major buzz from early screenings, with some even whispering that it could be an awards cont...

    Joel Edgerton, Luke Evans Competing For Role Of Tom Buchanan In Baz Luhrmann's 'The Great Gatsby'

    The list of go-to names for big roles, particularly for male leads, is an ever-changing one. We ran down a list last year, but even in the few months since then, new names have come to the forefront, and some have jumped to the front of the queue. "Thor" star Chris Hemsworth, for instance, who just locked down the title role opposite Kristen Stewart in "Snow White and the Huntsman," is a newbie, while his co-star in the forthcoming film, "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" romantic lead Sam Clafin, not only bagged the prince part in the fairy tale, but also the lead in would-be-'Harry Potter'-replacement franchise "The Seventh Son,"...
