After the flop of his Australia, starring Ozzies Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman, it's clear that director Baz Luhrmann's once-promising talent is mostly spent. Remember Moulin Rouge? If you don’t you are lucky. But really, does he have to take down an American classic with him when he goes? Luhrmann is preparing to direct a new adaptation of The Great Gatsby. "I can report that Baz Luhrmann's next project is definitely The Great Gatsby," writes Nikki Finke. According to her, Lurhmann has purchased the rights to the book. Let us hope, if nothing else, he spares us by casting someone other than Kidman as Daisy.
