The Great Gatsby is a novel written by the great F. Scott Fitzgerald, published in 1925, and is now being made into a movie. Why? There are no original ideas in Hollywood. The movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Isla Fisher, and many more great actors.
When I was a teenager I read The Great Gatsby in private school. It was an incredible novel. I watched the movie video trailer below, and although it has some intense emotional scenes, I’m not sure how cohesive the story line will be. The movie will hit theaters on December 25, 2012, so there is great expectation this will be a blockbuster movie. If it’s done well it will be, and I hope it is because Fitzgerald is one of the greatest authors who ever lived.
You might remember a movie called The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, released in 2008, with Brad Pitt playing the starring role. That movie was also written by Fitzgerald as a short story in 1922.
