Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will be back to score David Fincher's Gone Girl

Jan. 21, 2014by:

Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor made the jump into film composing with director David Fincher's THE SOCIAL NETWORK in 2010. Working alongside fellow composer and frequent collaborator Atticus Ross (THE BOOK OF ELI, BROKEN CITY), the duo again worked with Fincher on 2011's THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, providing more of their moody electronic vibes for the dark subject matter. Now, it appears that both Reznor and Ross will lend their considerably eerie musical charms to Fincher's next, GONE GIRL, as indicated by Reznor on Twitter:

As a big fan of scores and soundtracks in general, I think this is good news. It may not be surprising, seeing as Fincher has stuck with the pair for his last two films, but it does bode well for the film, which is a dark mystery that will benefit greatly from a Reznor/Ross collaboration. I've remained spoiler free of anything related to GONE GIRL thus far and hope to stay that way as best I can, but this is news I'm happy to hear.

GONE GIRL hits theaters on October 3, 2014.

Extra Tidbit: Reznor also scored the videogame Call of Duty: Black Ops II

The score for The Social Network was hypnotic. It's not usually the kind of film music I listen to, but that Oscar was well-deserved.

Yeah, baby!

Can't wait. Their first two scores are staples for me when I'm getting work done.
Extra tidbit: Reznor only wrote the theme to Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, not the score. That said, the score is fantastic and definitely stands up to Reznor/Ross, Mansell, etc. movie and video game score quality.

Reznor/Ross/Fincher is one of my favorite pairings along with Zimmer/Nolan!

Great News

Huge fan of anything Trent touches. Was lucky enough to catch two dates from the recent Tension tour and what he did with older songs like "Even Deeper" blew my mind! Most people only know NIN for "Closer" which is a damn shame because Trent has really grown as an artist and a person since then. I absolutely love his soundtrack scores and listen to them all the time even though I have yet to even see The Social Network and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Truly great scores can be listened to out
Huge fan of anything Trent touches. Was lucky enough to catch two dates from the recent Tension tour and what he did with older songs like "Even Deeper" blew my mind! Most people only know NIN for "Closer" which is a damn shame because Trent has really grown as an artist and a person since then. I absolutely love his soundtrack scores and listen to them all the time even though I have yet to even see The Social Network and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Truly great scores can be listened to out of context and still pack an emotional punch, the songs may even take on an entirely different meaning than before. I can't wait to hear what Trent and Atticus come up with next.

P.S. Anyone interested in the duo of Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross should check out their band How to Destroy Angels. Its a very similar style of music only with Trent's wife adding a beautiful layer of vocals.

Best moving opening!

Fincher has always been a creative genius when it comes to his film openings but TGWTDT takes the cake as the best.

Trent Reznor also scored the original Quake video game for PC. It didn't get a lot of news at the time, since id Software was promoting the 3D technology in the game more than the music. But I remember that score being very effective. I was excited when he and Ross got the Oscar for The Social Network. I've always loved NIN, but it's awesome to see him getting the recognition for his scores.

Always was a NIN fan...

... But I'm almost digging Reznor's reemergence as a composer even more. Fincher, Reznor and Ross, what an incredible partnership that's developed here.
