Days turned into weeks, weeks turned into months. And then, one not-so-very special day, I went to my typewriter, I sat down, and I wrote our story. A story about a time, a story about a place, a story about the people. But above all things, a story about love. A love that will live forever. The End.
—  Christian, Moulin Rouge (2001)
Ben Affleck could be joining The Great Gatsby

Moulin Rouge director Baz Lurhmann is taking his time prepping his adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic The Great Gatsby, but the film’s cast is coming along nicely.

Affleck is currently weighing up an offer to play Tom Buchanan, the husband of Daisy (Mulligan). Meanwhile, DiCaprio has bagged the titular Gatsby, and Maguire is narrator Nick Carraway.
