Baz Luhrmann Would Like To Do a Hamlet DiCaprio, Too

May 9, 2013


Though The Great Gatsby appears eye-searing enough to necessitate its being a grand finale, it seems Baz Luhrmann would like to still continue his tradition of turning classic literature into Leonardo DiCaprio mix tapes. Speaking to THR at the Gatsby premiere, the director revealed that while "it's just a dream at this point," he'd like to next stick his Romeo + Juliet star in in a lurid adaptation of Hamlet. "To me, Gatsby is the American Hamlet," Luhrmann added. "What else could we possibly do as a follow-up?" Considering the tendency to draw from high school reading lists, maybe a really glitzy take on Elie Wiesel's Night?
