If you liked the music in the trailer for Baz Luhrmann’s THE GREAT GATSBY, you might be glad to hear that Jay-Z isn’t just lending a few of his songs to the soundtrack,
he’s actually composing the upcoming film’s entire original score (i know right).
The rapper is, apparently,
working hard to accomplish the task with another artist, who goes
by the name The Bullitts. Leonardo DiCaprio broke the news on Twitter in the early morning hours of Sunday. “Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC ‘The Great Gatsby,'” Bullitts exclaimed. “It is too DOPE for words!” Don’t expect the collaborators to start producing
tunes from the Roaring Twenties. The trailer certainly indicates otherwise and Luhrmann mixed in modern music for “Romeo + Juliet,” as well as the musical period piece “Moulin Rouge!”
It appears the flappers in Luhrmann’s latest film will be dancing to a very different beat than what F. Scott Fitzgerald imagined while writing his classic novel. THE GREAT GATSBY, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire, hits theaters on May 10.
