Australian beauty Gemma Ward has landed a role in Baz Luhrmann’s ambitious film adaptation of the literary classic The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Ward’s last big screen appearance was as a mermaid in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stronger Tides and her role in Gatsby has yet to be revealed, but all major roles have already been cast.
Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star as Gatsby
Carey Mulligan takes on the role of Daisy
Tobey Maguire is set to play Nick Carraway
Joel Edgerton takes on the jerks of jerks, Tom Buchanan.
The Great Gatsby is a top 5 in my list of must-reads, and if you haven’t already, be sure to pick up a copy (do people still buy books?) or download it to that nifty iPad you have.
Filming is set to start in Australia within the next few weeks.
