Great Gatsby Adaptation Now Being Made Exclusively By Rich People
In case the trailer wasn’t enough to convince you that Baz Luhrmann was turning a dense critique of American wealth into an ostentatious buffet of it, obscenely rich human Jay-Z is now composing the score. Because why critique wealth when you can just have it?
Sayeth one cheerleader:
Considering that much of Jay-Z’s recent works have been obsessed with nothing but the spoils of fame, cash and New York, the rapper would be the clear, if obvious, choice to contemporize the story.
If you take Nick Carraway out of the novel, I suppose so.
On the bright side, at this rate the movie will never come out, so I guess they can do whatever they want.
