drywall over brick fireplace

I want to update my brick floor to ceiling fireplace by putting drywall over brick and painting it white. I'd like to add a floating mantel, leave the Spanish tile on fireplace surround. I don't know if putting drywall, even if it's fire rated, is safe on gas fireplace. My goal is to simplify and modernize the look, keeping a Spanish feel to it. Any advice would be welcome.
