LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Ben Affleck is in talks to join Baz Luhrmann‘s all-star adaptation of “The Great Gatsby,” which the Australian director is making for Warner Bros.

Leonardo DiCaprio is pegged to play the wealthy and mysterious Jay Gatsby, while Tobey Maguire is playing Nick Carraway, who in the novel is the narrator. Carey Mulligan is playing Gatsby’s love, Daisy Buchanan, who is married to a wealthy chap named Tom Buchanan.

Affleck is interested in tackling the role of Buchanan except there’s a hitch: scheduling.

Affleck has set his sights as his next directorial effort the political thriller “Argo,” which would shoot in September. “Gatsby,” which Luhrmann is filming in 3D, aims to start shooting in August.

Both sides are trying to see if the dates can be worked out.
