The hip-hop star is reportedly the latest star to get attached to the upcoming film adaptation of "The Great Gatsby." Singer-songwriter
Jeymes Samuel, best known as the frontman for the Bullitts, says he and Jay-Z will be writing the score for "Gatsby."
The first clue of Jay-Z's involvement with keenly anticipated film adaptation of the F. Scott Fitzgerald classic novel, was shown in the film's trailer, in which scenes of the opulent lifestyle of Jay Gatsby (Leonardo DiCaprio) are set to Jay-Z and Kanye West's "No Church in the Wild," a track off the pair's album "Watch the Throne."
Cast members also said last spring that "Gatsby" director Baz Luhrmann played Jay-Z music on the set of "The Great Gatsby." "On my first day he had Jay-Z pumped up full, and we did the entire scene with, you know, Jay-Z in our ear on full blast while acting, and it was just so liberating," Isla Fischer told MTV.
The film, also starring Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan, is slated to open on May 10.
