Literary casting round-up: sci-fi, fantasy, and The Great Gatsby

Lots of book-to-movie casting news coming out recently:

Leonardo DiCaprio has apparently read for the role of Jay Gatsby in the still-up-in-the-air adaptation of The Great Gatsby.

Martin Freeman (best known for his role in the British version of The Office)is set to star as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit.

There are rumors that Colin Farrell will be starring in the remake of Total Recall, the (terrible) 1990 movie based on Philip K. Dick's story We Can Remember It for You Wholesale.
