The Great Gatsby book has also been adapted into a 3D film feature by Baz Luhrmann, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire
Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest big name to be involved in The Great Gatsby franchise as it’s revealed he has recorded an audio book of the classic novel.
It seems the whole of Hollywood is in the grip of The Great Gatsby fever with the film feature by Baz Luhrmann, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire soon to be released.
With an A-star cast and a killer soundtrack curtesy of Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Florence Welch, Lana Del Rey and Andre 3000, the highly anticipated film adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, which is set during the Roaring Twenties, is bound to incredible.
So it’s no wonder Jake Gyllenhaal has teamed up with Amazon-owned Audible.com and lent his pipes to a new audiobook edition of the novel that is just the first in what is described as a series of ‘definitive recordings of the Fitzgerald canon in association with the Fitzgerald Estate.’
The Great Gatsby will be released on May 10 in the US and May 16 in the UK.
