"F. Scott Fitzgerald 's novel is peppered with contemporary music references specific to the story's setting of 1922. While we acknowledge, as Fitzgerald phrased it, 'the Jazz Age,' and this is the period represented on screen, we -- our audience -- are living in the 'Hip-Hop Age' and want our viewers to feel the impact of modern-day music the way Fitzgerald did for the readers of his novel at the time of its publication," Luhrmann said in a statement.
Jay-Z's "No Church in the Wild," which he was recording when he and Luhrmann first came together, is included in the film, along with his original "100$ Bill."
