Jay-Z to Score 'The Great Gatsby'
"The Great Gatsby" may be set in the 1920s, but the 2013 film adaption is getting a modern twist.
Jay-Z will be co-writing the original musical score for the film directed by Baz Luhrmann, who also directed the period films "Romeo & Juliet" and "Moulin Rouge."
The rapper's producer-songwriter, The Bullitts (real name: Jeymes Samuel), broke the news on Twitter.
"Jay-Z and myself have been working tirelessly on the score for the upcoming #CLASSIC The Great Gatsby! It is too DOPE for words!" he tweeted Dec. 30.
