'The Great Gatsby' Set Photos: First Look at Tobey Maguire as Nick Carraway

Right now, Baz Luhrmann is shooting a $150 million adaptation of one of the finest American novels ever written, and today brings a fresh batch of thoroughly unofficial photos from the set of The Great Gatsby, with Luhrmann's native Australia doubling for Long Island, New York.  These photos show off both the costume and production design of Luhrmann's longtime collaborator Catherine Martin, who has worked exclusively with the director since 1992's Simply Ballroom.  These set photos provide our first look at Tobey Maguire in costume as Nick Carraway, the naive young narrator who mostly observes as the story unfolds before him.  Carroway's outfit is a good example of Martin's typically wonderful costume design, what with his jaunty bowtie and sweet-ass hat. 

The iPod in his hand is not an anachronism, Maguire is just on his way to the set.  The first two images come from CeleBuzz, while the second two originated at NY Mag's Vulture.  While the first three images are Tobey-centric, the last one shows an exterior set in Sydney, representing Long Island in the early 1920's.

This project is a reunion between Luhrmann and his Romeo + Juliet Romeo Leonardo DiCaprio, who is playing none other than Jay Gatsby, old sport.  The duo attempted for some time to get an Alexander the Great epic underway, but that fairly well fell apart when Oliver Stone's Alexander came together first.  Carey Mulligan co-stars as Daisy Buchanan, the object of Jay's misguided affections, and Joel Edgerton will play her racist, polo-loving husband Tom.  Isla Fisher and Jason Clarke round out the cast as Myrtle and George Wilson.

The Great Gatsby brings Fitzgerald's novel to lushly designed life in 3D on December 25, 2012.
