Is it Music or Money That is Causing Delay for Great Gatsby?

Is it Music or Money That is Causing Delay for Great Gatsby?
Baz Luhrmann's "The Great Gatsby" has been pushed back from a Christmas 2012 release to a mid-2013 release, but don't expect any bad feelings about it from Luhrmann, a notorious perfectionist.

He was recently quoted as saying "I will tell you this, I'm just very nourished by just working on it. I'm just thrilled. Right now I'm working on music, you can imagine how involved I am in the music alone."  This statement comes amid rumors that the real reason for the delay isn't music, but the budget, as well as reshoots.

Some say that the director had requested more money from the studio, but to no avail. The film is already overdue and over budget and it is said that more reshoots have been called for. No doubt that  Luhrmann must be trying to find some financing somewhere else.
