Could Baz Luhrmann's latest be getting a musical tune-up even before its release?
Unless actress Adelaide Clemens is completely full of it (which she probably isn't), it seems that's the reason for the push back on the release date. Over the summer, it was announced that Luhrmann's adaptation of "The Great Gatsby," which was originally slated to open on December 25, 2012, would hit screens May 10, 2013, instead. What could justify this nearly six months long delay?
The Los Angeles Times reported it was possibly so the director could compile an "all-star soundtrack." But we weren't so sure.
That is, until Clemens piped up on the subject at the press rounds for "Silent Hill 3D: Revelation." Somehow a question about her role as Catherine in the Fitzgerald reboot led her to announce that the film is beefing up its soundtrack with some serious star power, IndieWire's The Playlist reveals.
"They have some new music that's going to be added to the film. Some pretty huge artists have approached Baz and are writing songs for the film, and I don't think Warner Bros. are going to turn down Prince and Lady Gaga knocking down your door."
Once the words came out, she added, "I don't know if I'm allowed to say that." Oopsie.

Well, whether the actress spoke out of turn or not, (thankfully) isn't our concern, but the possibility of Prince and Gaga penning original songs for this sensory delight has us nearly ready to forgive the late release. Prince hasn't contributed new material to a soundtrack since 2006's "Happy Feet" and Gaga never has. Needless to say, if this duo delivers as promised, it will be music to our ears.
