Is The World Ready For Gatsby 3-D?

Director Baz Luhrman—who brought you Moulin Rouge and the 1996 Claire Danes-Leonardo DiCaprio version of Romeo + Juliet—acquired the rights to the Great Gatsby a couple of years ago, and word is that he’s now aiming towards making it 3-D. Hedonism, opulence, material excess: in your face! Luhrman says he recently “workshopped” Gatsby (which will star DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan) using the 3-D technology, and will soon make a decision on whether to move forward with the idea.

Oliver Stone, who was on a panel with Luhrman over the weekend, pointed out that filming in 3-D would add at least 20% to the cost of production, and that most dramas aren’t making money in 2-D… but maybe Stone is just bummed he didn’t think of this for the Wall Street sequel. anyway, if this moves forward, Doctor Eckleburg’s eyes are going to be INTENSE.
