Update: Gemma Ward confirmed to play 'Catherine' in The Great Gatsby
Lordy I am just brimming with news about The Great Gatsby remake today!
According to IMDB, the Aussie model is set to play Catherine in Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's famous novel. Gemma's character is the sister of Myrtle Wilson (Isla Fisher), who is George B. Wilson's (Jason Clarke) unstable wife and Tom Buchanan's (Joel Edgerton) mistress. Of course the title roles, Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan, have been given to Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mulligan respectively.
While no official release date for the film has been given, it is in production as we speak with November 2012 a loose date as to when it may hit cinemas. I don't know about you but I'm kind of dying to see this film. Bring on the gorgeous vintage flapper fashion from the 1920s!
