Jay-Z Confirmed to Score The Great Gatsby

From Collider:

When the first trailer for director Baz Luhrmann’s ambitious adaptation of the classic novel The Great Gatsby debuted online, many were jarred by the juxtaposition of Jay-Z and Kanye West’s “Church in the Wild” against the film’s period setting. The decision to use that song in the trailer wasn’t a complete shock, as Luhrmann has shown a propensity for populating his period films with modern music. He had no problem mixing Shakespeare with Radiohead in Romeo + Juliet and 1900s France with Madonna in Moulin Rouge!. Now, though, it appears that Luhrmann isn’t just repurposing existing songs for The Great Gatsby, but is having Jay-Z himself provide an original score for the film. (Cinema, Jay-Z, The Great Gatsby (2013))

So first Jay-Z pissed all over the excellent NBA2K...
... and now this!?

Guess we'll have to see how it turns out, but I'm kinda hating the current trend of movies getting their score done by some pop-musicians.

RZA doing Kill Bill, which was OK. Mike Shinoda replacing the excellent soundtrack of The Raid. And now Jay-Z.

I would rather hear classical music being played in this movie.Not modern rap music.
