Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, The Great Gatsby The first official The Great Gatsby pictures became available online a few days ago. Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, and Isla Fisher star in this latest big-screen version of F. Scott Fitzgerald's most famous novel. Moulin Rouge's Baz Luhrmann, who became major world news after injuring his head a week or so ago, directs. Set shortly after the end of World War I, The Great Gatsby is told through the eyes of Nick Carraway (Maguire), a returning war veteran who becomes part of the upper-class universe of Jay Gatsby (DiCaprio). There have been (at least) three previous The Great Gatsby adaptations for the big screen. A 1926 silent version is now lost. Only the trailer remains.

Mulligan Refused Permission To Snap Gatsby Papers

28 December 2011 8:01 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Carey Mulligan was left disappointed while researching her role in The Great Gatsby as bosses at a top U.S. college refused to let her take a photo of author F. Scott Fitzgerald's original manuscript.

The British star plays Daisy Buchanan in director Baz Luhrmann's upcoming big-screen version of the famed novel, and she embarked on an intensive period of research before shooting began.

She even travelled to Princeton University in New Jersey to trawl through its archives of documents relating to former student Fitzgerald - but when she tried to photograph the author's first draft of his most famous work, staff stopped her.

Mulligan tells Empire magazine, "Baz left us loaded with research files, books to read and folders of stuff about the 1920s. I went to Princeton and got to read Fitzgerald's papers. I even saw the first manuscript of The Great Gatsby. They wouldn't let me take a photo though." »

Baz Luhrmann Injured On 'Great Gatsby' Set

It's not easy being Jay Gatsby — nor is it easy being the man who oversees him, apparently.

Though it's not an action movie by any stretch of the imagination (though it does veer off towards the thriller genre at points), production on "Great Gatsby" reportedly got a bit hairy over the holiday weekend when director Baz Luhrmann was injured on the film's Australian set following a collision with a camera crane, according to the Sydney Morning Herald (via The Hollywood Reporter).

"We were on quite a cramped set and he was ducking under the crane," "Gatsby" co-producer Anton Monstead told the Herald of the incident. "He struck his head on the weights on the end of the camera crane. He split open his head, and we had to get the doctor."

Luhrmann reportedly needed three stitches in his head following his injury. As a result of the accident, production on »
