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

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.
