London, June 22 (ANI): Aussie comedian Barry Humphries seems to be unhappy with director Baz Luhrman’s plans to turn ‘The Great Gatsby’ book into a film.

The Moulin Rouge helmer is aiming to bring F Scott Fitzgerald’s jazz-age classic onto the big screen, but Dame Edna star Humphries, it seems, is not ready.

“I hear my extravagant countryman Baz Luhrman is planning to make another Great Gatsby movie,” the Daily Express Dame Edna star Barry, 75, in The Spectator.

“If he does it will be number six and none of them have been any good.

“In my copy of the book Fitzgerald has written to someone, ‘You might have seen the movie but I think the book stands by itself’. I think I might show this to Baz,” he added. (ANI)
