With all the buzz around the "visually eye-popping"* Baz Luhrmann film The Great Gatsby, the studios are clamoring to have him adapt more books you pretended to read in high school. It's really a natural progression; ever since he made Romeo and Juliet you could tell he really had a knack for telling classic stories people vaguely remember in a new and exciting** way. Frankly I won't pretend to read a book anymore if it doesn' have a vampire or wizard in it.
We got a look at some concept art for these reimaginings. I'm preordering the soundtrack now.
