The casting of the film with Carey Mulligan and Isla Fischer seems to be set, but a new article suggests Blake may still be in talks for a role in the much anticipated remake.

Guessing the cast of the upcoming remake of The Great Gatsby is becoming one of the funnest games around. Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fischer have been all but confirmed for roles, but, at the same time, no actor has been entirely confirmed for a role. So, Blake Lively‘s appearance in the TIME 100 list became all the more interesting when the author of her glowing profile was revealed — Great Gatsby director Baz Luhrmann.

Baz and Blake have never worked together and there only meeting likely came when Blake was on the shortlist for a role in the flick. What supports this even more however is that the final scenes being shot of Blake on Gossip Girl this season have been in Los Angeles, meaning she could very well be gone for a few months later this year while filming The Great Gatsby in Australia as her character Serena is out of New York City in LA.

This could of course just all be a coincidence, but it seems like no one should be surprised to see Blake confirmed for the role of Daisy or Myrtle down the road.

What do you think HollywoodLifers, will Blake be in Gatsby?
