Ben Affleck Will Now Direct & Star in 'Argo' Instead of 'Great Gatsby' Almost two weeks ago we learned that Ben Affleck was in talks to play Tom Buchanan in Baz Luhrmann's take on the classic novel The Great Gatsby. However, it seems the actor's passion for being behind the camera has prevailed as Deadline reports Affleck will instead be directing Argo, a project which we reported on back in February.

The Great Gatsby Synopsis and Credits

"The Great Gatsby" follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy (Carey Mulligan) and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan (Joel Edgerton). It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
