Here are the reasons I am feeling less-than optimistic about this movie, which does not start filming until this summer.
Baz Luhrmann is directing it, so it will have that distracting, Baz Luhrmann feel to it. There will be lots of bright colors, lots of dancing and probably a musical number. There's no room for color, dancing, or music in The Great Gatsby!
He is filming it in Australia! America once again is outsourcing
