Baz Lurmann is set to direct remake of The Great Gatsby.
Another one the greatest books ever written will be turned to shit.
Not that the 1974 version was any good either, but that's gonna look like goddamned Dr. Zhivago compared to what this guy does to it.
I was going to make a comment about why don't people just option the shit out of every great novel ever, but then saw that Pale Fire apparently has been in development or awhile. The end is extremely fucking nigh.
(wow. I'm cursing a whole bunch today. My apologies. I'm trying to get over that).
