Prince and Lady Gaga to write songs for Baz Luhrmann's F Scott Fitzgerald adaptation
PRINCE and Lady Gaga are among the artists writing songs for Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming adaptation of The Great Gatsby, according to one of the film’s stars.
In a recent press conference for the new Silent Hill movie, actress Adelaide Clemens let slip that “Some pretty huge artists have approached Baz and are writing songs for the film, and I don’t think Warner Bros are going to turn down Prince and Lady Gaga knocking down your door.”
Luhrmann has past form incorporating pop culture into his work — Moulin Rouge, lest we forget, featured some of the most cringe-worthily ‘postmodern’ song inclusions in film history — and the trailer for his new film, which stars Leonardo Di Caprio in the titular role, includes music by Kanye, Jay-Z and Jack White.
