Will Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire be joining Baz Luhrmann's Great Gatsby?

What's Baz Luhrmann going to do next?

According to him, he hasn't really decided. Both projects are based in New York City. One is a musical and the other is an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby".

Well Production Weekly tweeted (sigh), "Rumored casting for The Great Gatsby, Leonardo DiCaprio for Jay Gatsby, Tobey Maguire for Nick Carraway & Amanda Seyfried for Daisy Buchanan". Perhaps Luhrmann is moving forward with that project.

Or not...

His statements to MTV note that he might be more likely to go with the musical project, "The rumors are out! I've got two going. One is a musical and one is a period work, both based in New York City, and I'm about to make that decision. I've got the script for both of them and I'm making that decision in four to six weeks, no longer than six weeks," he teased, adding that "Gatsby" had no plans to add some singing. "Singing 'Gatsby'? No! 'Gatsby,' it is the Fitzgerald book and I've been working on that quite a lot. The other one is also New York based and music-driven and it's just a question of ... what is the next right step for me."

Damn him!!! Need more Leo! Must have Leo. Actually, the director didn't confirm the DiCaprio rumors, "You know I think of casting all the time, but I put that to the side and I complete the text. Obviously there are natural choices and there is a natural top of the list, but I really refuse to say anything until we have text right."

What would you guys rather have from Luhrmann? A musical or Gatsby?

Extra Tidbit: I will use any excuse to post that pic of Leo just happily not giving a f*ck on the set of INCEPTION.
