In a strange turn of events it has been announced that Jay Z will be creating the score for Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby.
Set in 1920s Long Island it will be very interesting to hear how Jay-Z will go about this musical feat. Luhrmann has done it before however with the Butthole Surfers and William Shakespeare however this might be a little different.
The films two trailers to date have featured Jay Z’s collaboration with Kanye West ‘No Church In The Wild’ from Watch The Throne so we suppose it’s not too much of a surprise when you think about it.
Let’s just hope that it will hep people forget about his collaboration with Lana Del Rey.
Jay-Z will be working with Jeymes Samuel of The Bullitts however both Prince and Lady Gaga have already also written songs for the film so whether these will be dropped or worked in it is unclear.
Luhrmann’s 3D adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Great Gatsby is eagerly awaited.
