Meet Carey Mulligan as Daisy Buchanan
It’s official! Another remake of The Great Gatsby is in the work…One of my favourite (Australian) directors, Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Romeo & Juliet) has announced today that Carey Mulligan will play the starring role as Daisy Buchanan in his adaptation of the Great Gatsby.
Lurhmann says: “I was privileged to explore the character with some of the world’s most talented actresses, each one bringing their own particular interpretation, all of which were legitimate and exciting,” Luhrmann told Deadline. “However, specific to this particular production of ‘The Great Gatsby,’ I was thrilled to pick up the phone an hour ago to the young Oscar-nominated British actress Carey Mulligan and say to her: ‘Hello, Daisy Buchanan.’”
We know the story is good, acting should be very good and WITHOUT A DOUBT the costumes and the sets will make this film exciting to see…and the fact that beautiful and talented Carey Mulligan will play the role of Daisy Buchanan together with Leonardo DiCaprio (who has worked with Luhrmann before in Romeo & Juliet). Though I’m not certain if DiCaprio has been ‘officially’ cast for this role? However, I think it’s going to be a brilliant film and I’m really looking forward to it…till next year I guess? Do you think you’ll be going to see this film in the cinema?
