‘The Great Gatsby’ follows F. Scott Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, in the midst of the roaring twenties, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, he tells a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
Baz Luhrmann directs the ‘The Great Gatsby’ from a screenplay co-written with frequent collaborator Craig Pearce, based on F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel of the same name. Lead by Leonardo DiCaprio as Jay Gatsby, ‘The Great Gatsby’ also stars Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway, Joel Edgerton and Carey Mulligan as Tom and Daisy Buchanan, Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke as Myrtle and George Wilson, newcomer Elizabeth Debicki as Jordan Baker, and Indian film legend Amitabh Bachchan as Meyer Wolfsheim. ‘The Great Gatsby’ arrives in cinemas on May 10th in the US and Canada, with an international rollout on May 15th (May 16th in the UK). Look out for a more in-depth interview with Leonardo DiCaprio for the film in May.
What was it about Jay Gatsby that particularly intrigued you when you were first approached to play him? He’s a character, an iconic character, who still garners much debate and discussion….
Leonardo DiCaprio: Yeah, definitely! Jay Gatsby is an incredible character to play because I think everyone has their own interpretation of who Gatsby is, what his motivations are. And a lot of what makes Jay Gatsby so interesting is what is left unsaid in the novel and what is left unsaid about Jay Gatsby. He’s young man who came from humble beginnings and sort of recreated himself according to his own imagination – for the love of a woman. And this woman he loves belongs to a different class structure to him. On the surface, I think he’s pretty much the manifestation of the “American Dream” of imagining who you can become in a place and a time like America in the 1920s.
Out and about on the promotional campaign for ‘Pain & Gain,’ Michael Bay shared some details with Moviefone out two projects he’s currently working on: the Jonathan Liebesman-helmed reboot of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ and the latest instalment in his ‘Transformers’ franchise, tentatively titled ‘Transformers 4.’ Talking about ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,’ Bay clarifies, “There was that quote saying that we’re making [the Ninja Turtles as] aliens. We’re not. It’s the ooze! It’s from the original source material. These are from the original writers, and I never went out to correct myself in the press. I do listen to the fans and I do want this to be authentic. I think they’re going to be really happy with this movie. When I see the digital stuff, the turtles look great.”
Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) is directing the live-action CG hybrid take on the classic 1980s characters which first debuted in an indie comic before going on to become a massively popular cartoon and merchandising line. Megan Fox is playing April O’Neil, reporter and ally to the sewer-dwelling heroes Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael as well as their master, Splinter (Danny Woodburn). Playing the four turtles via motion capture are up-and-comers Alan Ritchson (Raphael), Pete Ploszek (Leonardo), Jeremy Howard (Donatello) and Noel Fisher (Michaelangelo). Paramount Pictures recently moved ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ from its initial May 16th, 2014 release date to a June 6th, 2014 bow. Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes partners Bradley Fuller and Andrew Form are producing the film.
