The postponement of Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming cinematic take on the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic, The Great Gatsby, seems to have given the filmmaker time to tweak the film’s sound.
Castmember Adelaide Clemens (who will be playing Catherine opposite Isla Fisher’s Myrtle Wilson in the film), tells The Playlist that Lady Gaga and Prince have approached the director to contribute to the soundtrack.
“They have some new music that’s going to be added to the film…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,” Clemens said. “I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that.
Prince is familiar with combining music and movies. He most recently contributed to the Happy Feet soundtrack in 2006, and he’s also well known for his work on the original Batman soundtrack. This would be Lady Gaga’s first foray into the medium. Will it be solo efforts or a collaboration? Only time will tell.
Viewers can catch The Great Gatsby and its soundtrack in theaters May 10, 2013.
