THE GREAT GATSBY, Warner Bros
EW reports that superstars Lady Gaga and Prince will be featured on the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's upcoming remake of THE GREAT GATSBY. The film will be released in theaters on May 10, 2013.
Speaking to Indiewire during a press tour for her upcoming film 'Silent Hill Revelation 3D, 'Gatsby' actress Adelaide Clemens revealed, "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. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that.”
Lady Gaga is currently working on her next album, 'Artpop' due out next year, while Prince recently released his new single, “Rock and Roll Love Affair.”
“The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz, bootleg kings, and sky-rocketing stocks. Chasing his own American Dream, Nick lands next door to a mysterious, party-giving millionaire, Jay Gatsby, and across the bay from his cousin, Daisy, and her philandering, blue-blooded husband, Tom Buchanan. It is thus that Nick is drawn into the captivating world of the super rich, their illusions, loves and deceits. As Nick bears witness, within and without of the world he inhabits, he pens a tale of impossible love, incorruptible dreams and high-octane tragedy, and holds a mirror to our own modern times and struggles.
