Watching him on the screen is such a great pleasure for millions of his fans. Though Luhrmann is working on his new big feature film after a long time since The Great Gatsby, it’s an important project according to him.
Another interesting part of this movie is the return of the Oscar-winning costume designer Catherine Martin who worked previously with Luhrmann in Moulin Rouge! and The Great Gatsby.
