Trent Reznor Scoring David Fincher's 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'

Trent Reznor

Looking back at 2010, one piece of last year that I know will be talked about for years is Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' score for David Fincher's The Social Network, that's not only topping a lot of best soundtrack lists (including the /Filmcast's Best of), but is just an amazing contemporary score than many folks listen to on a daily basis. So I'm not really surprised, but I am very excited to report that Trent Reznor is scoring Fincher's next film, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo remake, that he's shooting. The Nine Inch Nails musician confirmed during a live chat with Jon Pareles on Times Talk tonight (caught by The Film Stage).

Obviously not only did his work on The Social Network just turn out phenomenal in the end, but he must've become friends with Fincher, as that would explain why he wants him back for more. Reznor has apparently been working on the film for about six weeks so far and said to "expect something different" than The Social Network, but they've obviously got a long ways to go, so plenty can change. I'm guessing that Reznor might also work with producer/composer Atticus Ross again, but that hasn't been confirmed yet. Fincher is still hard at work on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as Sony has the film set for release this December 21st. Reznor's style will fit well into a brilliant, dark "techno-thriller" like this, which makes him a perfect choice.

If you can't tell, I've been listening to the score while writing this and it really is incredible (it's worth every penny!). It's a great accompaniment to almost any kind of work you're doing, although it' particularly fitting because I'm working on a website right now too - how meta! Anyway, this is fantastic news to hear, as I've found myself enjoying most of the work that mainstream musicians have done on various soundtracks, and I'm happy to see Reznor continue working in film once again. I'm already looking forward to hearing/seeing The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo even though we've still got another 12 months to go. Bring it on, Fincher!

Great news! And, btw, he's been friends with Fincher for a long time.

I really like this current trend of letting musicians that don't work in film try their hand at scoring a film. It always produces breathtaking results. Johnny Greenwood for "There Will Be Blood". Daft Punk for "Tron: Legacy". Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross for "The Social Network". Arcade Fire for "The Box". (I'm talking about the score being great not the movie.) There's also the upcoming Joe Wright film "Hanna" that will be scored by The Chemical Brothers.

My only question is: Why the heck do we need to remake it? The european version of the film was amazing. Americanizing it will not enhance it.
