The Great Gatsby pushed back to 2013

The upcoming 3D film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic, The Great Gatsby, has been pushed from Christmas 2012 to summer 2013 by Warner Bros. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan, Joel Edgerton, and Isla Fisher and is directed by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge, Romeo + Juliet).

WB president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman released this statement about the scheduling move:
"Based on what we've seen, Baz Luhrmann's incredible work is all we anticipated and so much more. It truly brings Fitzgerald's American classic to life in a completely immersive, visually stunning and exiting way. We think movieogers of all ages are going to embrace it, and it makes sense to ensure this unique film reaches the largest audience possible."

This is why we can't have nice things.
