Ben Affleck pulls out of Gatsby film

Ben Affleck has pulled out of director Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald's classic The Great Gatsby.

Just hours after news broke about Isla Fisher joining the cast - as the mistress of Ben Affleck's character Tom Buchanan - The Town star has reportedly quit the project to concentrate on his next directorial role on Iranian hostage crisis drama Argo.

Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan are still a part of the all-star cast.
