Baz Luhrmann to direct a film version of The Great Gatsby?

Say it ain't so, Cinematical. I love me some Luhrmann (well, I love Strictly Ballroom and Romeo and Juliet, and I'm on slightly-warmer-than-nodding terms with Moulin Rouge!, but I haven't seen Australia yet*), but he's all wrong for The Great Gatsby.

*Seriously, a three-hour running time? Does the man not realize we are a nation with ADD?

Also, what was wrong with the Robert Redford/Mia Farrow version? Is there really a need for a new movie Gatsby?

Um yeah the Mia farrow/robert redford version was dry and boring. A new Gatsby could be a good thing.

I haven't seen the Farrow/Redford version, but I hear there's a TV version with Paul Rudd (which I didn't see, either). Anybody catch that? Because I have a powerful crush on Mr. Rudd....
