Jay-Z is set to make his mark in Hollywood.

The rap star is taking on the role of musical supervisor on The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, according to The Sun.

Australian director Baz Luhrmann wants to set the film, also starring Isla Fisher and Carey Mulligan and due out next year, to contemporary music.

The movie is based on the 1925 F Scott Fitzgerald novel and set in 1920s New York.

Jay-Z and Beyonce were among the celebs who recently helped DiCaprio celebrate his 38th birthday in New York.
