Trent Reznor says David Fincher's Gone Girl is "a nasty film"
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will provide the score for David Fincher's upcoming GONE GIRL, as they did for the director's THE SOCIAL NETWORK and THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. In a recent interview with EW, Reznor talked a bit about GONE GIRL, and creating the scores for Fincher's movie.
“This film has been really fun to work on. It’s been an interesting challenge with some different parameters, and it keeps us on our toes. That’s what makes it good. It’s a much darker film than I was expecting. The book is not exactly uplifting or happy, but it’s a nasty film.”
“Not really knowing what I’m doing in the world of scoring films, the best decision Atticus and I made starting with The Social Network was really just to listen and really try to understand what David is thinking. It’s clear he has a pretty realized vision in his head, and he’s thought a lot about whatever project he is working on, and I’ve always felt like our role is in service to that. How do we translate the role that he thinks music should be, and the tones and textures and spaces it’s allowed to take up, and then make it better than that? So step one in all the projects we’ve done with him is just to sit and let him talk about it and listen before any music is written or before any palette of sounds is chosen. That’s been the right strategy so far.”
If Trent Reznor thinks GONE GIRL is nasty, it must be one very unpleasant film. And by unpleasant, I mean exactly the type of movie I expect from David Fincher. The darker and nastier, the better in my opinion, and I can't wait to check out David Fincher's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel.
