Joel Edgerton on “The Great Gatsby”

Here’s advance word from Joel Edgerton, who’s winning raves along with Tom Hardy for their performances in “Warrior”: “I’ll be playing Tom Buchanan. We really went deep into preproduction and rehearsals. We did a really lovely workshop in New York with all of the actors, Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher. Baz is the perfect person to take this book on. Fitzgerald has such a great descriptive language and then you need a filmmaker who has a visual language that will match that poetry. I think Baz will do that. He cares so much about this book. I hope it will be great, as the book implies.”
