Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross Reteam with Fincher for 'Gone Girl' Score
This isn't exactly shocking news, but it is good news that we're happy to report. David Fincher is currently filming and working on his next project, an adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel Gone Girl, which stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. We ran a first look photo a few weeks ago, but we can now report that Fincher is reteaming with musicians Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross for the score. The trio worked together twice in the past, for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and The Social Network, winning a Best Score Oscar for the latter in 2011. Reznor confirmed he's working on the score on Twitter, so it's about as official as it can get.
and yes, Atticus and I are scoring David Fincher’s upcoming Gone Girl!
