Excerpts From Truman Capote’s Original Hardcore Gay 1974 Script for ‘The Great Gatsby’ That Baz Luhrmann Has Read But No One Else

From Baz Luhrmann: Interviews, edited by Tom Ryan:

“There’s a screenplay for it written by Truman Capote, which I got my hands on. Bob Evans, whom I now know very well and who was running the studio at the time, rejected it. Because, basically, Jordan is gay and Nick is gay and the script is too hardcore.”

MCKEE: come to lunch someday.
NICK: or we could just…fuck right now
