Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails says The Social Network is good and talks about doing the score

Jul. 1, 2010by: Niki Stephens

Good news? This is great news!

Trent Reznor, one of the leaders of my favorite bands, Nine Inch Nails is doing the score for THE SOCIAL NETWORK. I figured this would be a job for some band like, The Fray or One Republic.

Trent Reznor sent out a tweet of the news, which was accompanied by a link that sends you over to the official site for his band. Reznor wrote up a little blog about his involvement with the film.

Here is said blog:

"I was planning on taking some time off after the continual waves of touring that ended last fall and spend this year experimenting around with what would become How To Destroy Angels and some new NIN. Well, that plan didn't work out so well. David Fincher started inquiring about my interest in scoring his upcoming film, The Social Network. Yeah, the movie about the founding of Facebook. I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned. Atticus Ross and I have been on a creative roll so I asked him if he wanted to work on this with me and we signed on."

"Months later, I'm happy to tell you we're nearing the completion of this and I couldn't be happier with how it's turned out. The level of excellence that David operates on is inspiring and the entire process has been challenging and truly enjoyable."

"As Atticus and I near the end of the scoring process, we're looking forward to the next phase - distilling the large amount of music we've written for this down to a satisfying record (or two). The film opens Oct 1 in the US with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that."

Speaking of the film... it's really fucking good. And dark!"

The fact that Reznor is doing the score really turns my attitude up on this project. This also most likely means that some NIN songs will be used in the film. Maybe some new songs from the band will show up as well. While Reznor's opinion is only one, a lot of people are saying this script has some power behind it. Also, Fincher can't do us wrong. Guess we'll see when a theatrical trailer shows up for this thing.

I have mostly contempt for facebook, so initially I thought a movie about it would be astoundingly lame. Then I found out Fincher was directing... and I knew it would be something I'd at least have to see, because Fincher is one of my absolute favorite directors. Now that I hear Reznor is involved, and after reading his comments about how good the movie is "...and dark", this is now my most anticipated movie this year. Fincher AND Reznor? You bet your ass it's gonna be good.

Fave NIN

Fave NIN song: "Burn" - "This world rejects me; this world threw me away; this world never gave me a chance; this world' gonna have to pay... ...I'M GONNA BURN THIS - WHOLE - WORLD - DOWN!!!" ... Yes.

NIN?

Dead for me since The fragile. But I love what he's done for Lost highway, so, who knows? In my book, Fincher blows Nolan out of the water, the same goes for the overrated Cameron and for the bad clone that took Michael Mann's place.

i dont know why this project got so much hate to begin with. it's got to be a fairly interesting tale about the startup of something that 90% of us use every single day. its not like its the story of people USING facebook or something.

Awesome. Kinda caught me off guard as this doesn't thematically seem like the type of flick to employ Reznor's stuff on but this sounds pretty friggin' cool. As far as song and album I gotta go with "The Perfect Drug" and "The Fragile" double set. Such a great band.

Great chemistry

Just what this movie needed. Good to see fincher doing dark again.
Favorite NIN is hard but I'd have to say Sin (updated one, not the original)or something I can never have. Where's the old school love on here.

"Get Down Make Love" came out in 1990 as a maxi single around the same time as pretty hate machine. It was on the SIN release which has 4 or 5 mixes of SIN and the the cover of Queen's "Get Down Make Love"

Never been a NIN fan....

But this could be a nice touch for something a lot of people aren't sure about.

I do like "March of the Pigs"

It makes sense that Reznor is scoring a film, half of his bands songs are used in trailers nowadays! They have a great cinematic feel to them. Very excited to hear him score this film and to see the movie...though I feel like once I see this dark movie, I will forever feel dirty using facebook! Oh and "just like you imagined" is my favorite song.

I guess I'm finally sold . . .

Fincher. YES! Reznor. YES! Facebook. HUH???? I guess I'll trust Reznor when he said the script won him over.

NIN FTW

I'm a big NIN fan, fave album is The Fragile, of course; fave songs - The Day The World Went Away, The Great Below, The Big Comedown, Deep, Eraser, Reptile, And All That Could Have Been, The Perfect Drug etc. etc... For the 1st time I'm actually excited about this film.

Cool News, Shaping up very nicely

Random tidbit:
2 dvds I guarantee Trent Reznor owns are 'Sideways' and 'My summer of love'. I served him once when I used to work at a Virgin Megastore in the uk before they all closed.

Holy fuck. Yet another reason to anticipate this like nothing else. And I love that Reznor was skeptical about the project at first as well, like the rest of us. But if he gives it the thumbs up, I'm sure we all will :)

"Downward Spiral" for album, "Ruiner" for song.

Interested to see and hear what Reznor & Fincher come up with..

As much as I love The Fragile album, I'd say "Something I Can Never Have" off of Pretty Hate Machine..."A Warm Place" off of Downward Spiral is a close second

Ok its official the film is going to deliver

If Trent's onboard there must be something special about the project. Who would have thought? Fincher and Reznor working together on a film about Facebook.

"Downward Spiral" is still Trent's best work in my opinion

NIN is awesome

But does anyone see potential here, I mean the news of Reznor being on the score sounds good to me because it sounds similar to another Fincher film.

Fincher + Dust Brothers = Fight Club
Fincher + NIN/Reznor = The Social Network

Not making assumptions but... ???

Trent Reznor is the Man

I've been excited for this movie for a while. I knew that David Fincher would be able to pull it off and make it nice and dark. But with Trent Reznor being on board...This just added a whole new level of awesomeness and another layer of depth. The Fragile is probably my favorite of Trent's, "The Great Below" and "The Way Out is Through" are my favorites off of it.

Words of wisdom. Fragile is a masterpiece. And Great below is simply put one of the best song ever made. IMO

Atticus Ross (Book of Eli) and Reznor? Together? Hell to the fuck yeah. I loved Ross's semi-industrial feel in the Book of Eli soundtrack that I think it will fit in well with whatever NIN has planned. Add this on top of a very interesting film (in my opinion) and I think they've got another viewer for the film. Can't wait.

"The Day The World Went Away" off their FRAGILE album. I was already excited about this and hearing manic depressive Trent Reznor's involvement makes me even more pumped.
