American literature nerds, unite! Australian director Baz Luhrmann, known for his splashy and elaborate films like Romeo & Juliet, Moulin Rouge, and Australia, is working on an adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby. It’s been 35-plus years since Robert Redford, Sam Waterson, and Mia Farrow first brought Fitzergerald’s characters to life in Jack Clayton’s 1974 film adaptation — are you excited at the possibility of an update?

Luhrmann has reportedly held workshops with Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Rebecca Hall, and Natalie Portman and Amanda Seyfried are also rumored to be under consideration. But we want to know: Who would you cast in a Gatsby remake?

The films are courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, and are available while supplies last.
