Lady Gaga will join Prince in collaborating musically with the film’s director, Baz Luhrmann
Lady Gaga may not have her own movie role (yet), unlike Beyonce or Madonna, but she’s about to appear in one of the hottest silver screen offerings of the year, The Great Gatsby.
The quirky songstress has been accidentally revealed as one of the names thought to be writing and performing songs for the soundtrack.
Adelaide Clemens, who plays Catherine in the film, told Indiewire’s The Playlist: ‘Some pretty huge artists have approached Baz [Luhrmann, the film’s director] and are writing songs for the film, and I don’t think Warner Brothers are going to turn down Prince and Lady Gaga knocking down your door.’
Quickly realising she’d said too much Catherine added: ‘I don’t know if I’m allowed to say that.’
Lady Gaga will be in good company on the soundtrack, not only with Prince’s 80s sound, but the film’s trailer already features Jay-Z’s music.
And they’re not the only A-list names associated with the film. The Great Gatsby cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan, Tobey Maguire and Isla Fisher.
