Jay-Z is also acting as an executive producer for the flick and he said that the movie is a perfect chance to make the F. Scott Fitzgerald story modern. He said:
"The Great Gatsby is that classic American story of one's introduction to extravagance, decadence and illusion. It's ripe for experimentation and ready to be interpreted with a modern twist."
