Gatsby Prepares For Premiere

The countdown to the opening of Baz Luhrmann's The Great Gatsby has begun. Six new opulent character posters - a TV commercial - and in perfect Baz fashion - a daringly unique soundtrack is taking shape with Jay-Z. This film is shot on RED Epic cameras in native 3D by cinematographer Simon Duggan with OFFHOLLYWOOD's stereographer Alonso Homs.

“The Great Gatsby” is turning into a family affair. Jay-Z, who is producing the soundtrack to the film, has recruited his wife, Beyonce, to record a cover of Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” for the film.

Beyonce will collaborate with Outkast’s Andre 3000 on the remake, according to E! News Daily. The pair previously worked together on Beyonce tune, “Party.”

The Baz-Luhrmann-directed “The Great Gatsby” stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Carey Mullligan. It will open the Cannes Film Festival on May 15.

The soundtrack to “The Great Gatsby” will come out on Interscope. Jay-Z is also scoring the film, as we previously reported.
