LOS ANGELES (GaeaTimes.com) — Battle for the role of ‘lifetime’ begins. Keira Knightley and Rebecca Hall are fighting hard to grab the role of Daisy Buchanan in a new adaptation of ‘The Great Gatsby’.
Reportedly, both the actress are trying to impress the director Baz Luhrmann for the most sought-after character.
For a young actress its a golden opportunity since Rooney Mara was cast as Lisbeth Salander in the remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
The movie inspired by F Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel will be filming Leonardo DiCaprio in the title role. The most-awaited movie will be the first since 1974 version that starred Robert Redford and Mia Farrow.
As of now, Hall is said to have taken an edge over Knightley.
