Gemma Ward joins Great Gatsby
Gemma Ward is the latest in a list of people to join the Great Gatsby.
Callan McAuliffe has also joined the cast of Baz Luhrmann’s film adaptation of the F Scott Fitzgerald novel.
The film is to begin filming next month, but in the mean time Luhrmann has been filming the smaller parts of the movie, so all signs point to Ward and McAuliffe only having minor roles within the movie.
The feature film also features the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke and Joel Edgerton. The film boasts quite the cast but given Luhramann’s track record with films I’m sure they were dying to be a part of this project.
There’s no word at the moment on who Ward will play, but it is speculated she will be playing the role of Catherine, The sister of Fisher’s character, whilst McAuliffe will be playing the younger version of DiCaprio’s leading role.
The script has been written by Luhrmann and his regular co-writer Craig Pearce, and is expected to be hitting our screens next year, and in 3D.
