OK, OK. Deep breath. Paris Hilton Latest: 'Gatsby' Remake QUOTE Maybe F. Scott Fitzgerald is rolling in his grave. Then again, maybe not. All I know is, entrepreneurial 'N Sync singer Lance Bass is getting ready to produce a big-screen take on "The Great Gatsby" with Paris Hilton as an updated Daisy Buchanan. Maybe someone will ask Paris tonight at her, uh, book party if she's even read "The Great Gatsby." Perhaps Merle Ginsberg, the ghostwriter of "Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose," will read it to her tonight at Lot 61. Anyway, if Bass and his partners get their way, the Jay Gatsby character will be played by Chris Carmack, the third lead young man on Fox's TV series "The O.C." Jamie-Lynn DiScala, of "The Sopranos," will play Tom Buchanan's love interest � made famous in the 1974 film version by Karen Black and in 1949 by Shelley Winters. So to review: That's Paris doing Mia Farrow, who in turn did Betty Field, and a guy from "The O.C." as Robert Redford, previously incarnated by Alan Ladd. No word on who will play the story's conscience, Nick Carraway, who was brought to the screen in 1974 by Sam Waterston. I'm thinking Freddie Prinze, Jr., but no one asked me. All kidding aside, Lance continues to be a tireless presence who will not rest on the 'N Sync laurels. He's just produced another film, "Lovewrecked," directed by Randal Kleiser and also starring Jamie-Lynn and Carmack alongside Amanda Bynes. Tonight he'll attend bandmate Joey Fatone's wedding somewhere in New York along with Justin, Nick, J.C. and the other one. But don't look for any new music for a long time. "It all depends on whether Justin wants to do it, and he doesn't," Lance told me recently about Timberlake. "He doesn't even want to make his own new solo album. He just wants to make movies." By the way, here's a title for the Gatsby update: "Jay G." I'm not kidding.
