New Photos Released From The Great Gatsby Set

For those of you are as excited as I am about this film, will be pleased with the new photos that have been released from the set of The Great Gatsby.

The film, which features Leonard DiCaprio, Toby Maguire, and Carey Mulligan, is being directed by Baz Luhrmann. The photos show the actors on set in Sydney Centennial Park in Sydney, Australia.

The Great Gatsby is about a writer named Nick Carraway, as he comes to New York City. He meets the extravagant, Jay Gatsby and his love interest Daisy Buchanan who just happens to be married already. The book is set in First World War. American society enjoyed prosperity during the “roaring” 1920s as the economy soared. At the same time, Prohibition, the ban on the sale and manufacture of alcohol as mandated by the Eighteenth Amendment, made millionaires out of bootleggers.

I think ComingSoon.net describes it best:

“It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.”

Are you excited about this remake? I have mixed emotions because it is a book I grew up loving. I would hate to see it ruined with creative licenses, but hopefully they will do a good job and retain the emotion the book presents to its readers.
