Lana Del Rey to appear on 'Great Gatsby' soundtrack?
Singer posts teasing picture on her Facebook page
Lana Del Rey has apparently confirmed that she has worked on the soundtrack for the forthcoming Great Gatsby movie.
The 'Video Games' chanteuse has fuelled speculation about her involvement by posting the film’s logo to her Facebook page. The image has since been taken down.
Rumours that she had been writing original music for the soundtrack have circulated since an interview last summer, where she said: “I’ve been helping compose scores for movies. So, like, there’s a movie coming out in the summer that’s set in the 1920s and it’s been fun for me to write love songs for a woman who is the star.” The Great Gatsby is the only major film on this summer’s release slate that fits that description.
Baz Luhrmann’s adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s romantic classic will be the fifth screen version, following previous films in 1926, 1949, 1974 and a TV movie in 2000. The new version features an all-star cast of Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Carey Mulligan and Isla Fisher. It is scheduled for release in May.
