Scott Fitzgerald story, one of the film industrys most anticipated projects Great Gatsby to shoot in Sydney BAZ Luhrmann has signed a deal to remake one of the most iconic movies of all time, The Great Gatsby, in Sydney. In a coup for the Australian film industry, Luhrmann has brushed New York where the classic tale is set and will instead shoot a 3D version in New South Wales. The NSW government signed off on a production deal with Luhrmann on Friday. Luhrmann has already secured Leonardo DiCaprio to play Jay Gatsby in the F. Scott Fitzgerald story, one of the film industrys most anticipated projects. It will be the first time Luhrmann and DiCaprio have worked together since the 1996 film Romeo + Juliet. DiCaprio, who commands $20 million a movie, will reprise the role made famous by Robert Redford in 1974, with British actress Carey Mulligan, 25, as Daisy Buchanan, played by Mia Farrow in the original. Tobey Maguire is tipped to play young bachelor Nick Carraway. The production will provide a much-needed boost to the struggling local film industry. It is also a gamble for Luhrmann, whose last movie, Australia, was a box-office flop internationally and who needs another hit like Romeo + Juliet or Moulin Rouge! (2001) to his name. The Warner Bros-backed film will be produced at Syd neys Fox Studios and will be the first live-action 3D movie shot in NSW. Filming will begin in August and last 17 weeks before 30 weeks of post-production. Luhrmann and his wife, Catherine Martin, will re-create famous New York and Long Island landmarks from the 1920s. Premier Kristina Keneally said the deal would inject more than $120 million into the NSW economy. Hawko snubbed as Gale blows in JENNIFER Hawkins looks to be losing her lustre following word that Foxtel knocked her back in favour of older semi-retired David Jones stunner Megan Gale as host of its new series of Project Runway. Television sources have confirmed that before Gale had been signed on for the role, Hawkinss agent approached TV producers and offered the Myer am bassador Hawko for the high profile anchor role vacated by Kristy Hinze last year. Foxtel confirmed it said no to Hawkins. We did say no to Jennifer. We were approached by her management and felt she wasnt right, a spokesman said. The exotic-looking Gale, claims insiders, has a bigger brand than Hawkins, and is better television talent. Warlow turns heads ANTHONY Warlow has received a standing ovation at the world premiere of the musical Doctor Zhivago in Sydney. The performer made it back on stage after having to pull out of earlier previews because of a calf injury. Describing the show at Sydneys Lyric Theatre as pol ished, newspaper reviews said Warlow was in top form on Saturday night. (Warlow) is at full strength in the the most dramatically challenging role of his career, the Sun Herald said. This intelligent and moving new musical appeals across the board. Sheen exploits puzzle ex-wife Denise Richards CHARLIE Sheens ex-wife Denise Richards says trying to explain his exploits to their children has been tricky. Sheen is undergoing rehabilitation following an incident on January 27 when he was carried out of his Los Angeles home on a stretcher. He allegedly had spent the night partying with porn stars. This is Charlies lifestyle, Richards said of the TV star. Richards, who divorced Sheen in 2006 after four years of marriage, said it was not easy explaining to her daughters Sam, 6, and Lola, 5, what their dad was going through.
