The Great Gatsby-father?

A fascinating story to come out of next week’s release of Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby

Did you know that Francis Ford Coppola was hired to do a rewrite on the 1974 version of Gatsby (with Robert Redford) — right before The Godfather was released? Apparently Redford liked his work so much on The Way We Were (another uncredited polish — not Polish like the Flisak poster below on the left) — that FFC was brought in to save the day. Town & Country gives Coppola’s first-hand account of being holed up in a Paris hotel room, battling to capture the ghosts of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel.

Hmmm, sounds an awful lot like Woody Allen’s Midnight In Paris! (THR)

Daniel Day-Lincoln?

Steven Spielberg’s highly-anticipated historical drama, Lincoln, comes out this fall — and Dreamworks has just released this first image of British/Irish-Anglo thespian, Daniel Day-Lewis, as the iconic American President (not the Vampire Hunter).

The Stalker of Suspense?

There’s a new Hitchcock biopic (not to be confused with the other Anthony Hopkins-Hitchcock flick) coming out in October by HBO called The Girl, starring Toby Jones as Sir Alfred — and it covers The Master of Suspense’s scary obsession with female lead, Tippi Hedren (played by Sienna Miller), during filming of The Birds and Marnie.
