Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross Sign On To Score David Fincher's 'Gone Girl'
The NIN frontman and his soundtrack collaborator are re-teaming once again to score Fincher's next picture
Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will once again be working with director David Fincher when the pair join up in the studio to write the soundtrack to the upcoming movie adaption for Gone Girl. The Nine Inch Nails frontman revealed that he will be working with Ross once again via his official Twitter feed on Tuesday, 21 January.

This will be Reznor and Ross' third major collaboration together, having last worked on the score for Fincher's adaption of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in 2012. A year earlier, the pair worked together to score Fincher's The Social Network, earning an Academy Award for their work on the original score. The pair also scored a Grammy nomination for best original score for visual media for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, but failed to win anything as major for that film as they had previously.
and yes, Atticus and I are scoring David Fincher’s upcoming Gone Girl!— Trent Reznor (@trent_reznor) January 21, 2014
Gone Girl is the big screen adaption of Gillian Flynn's 2012 best selling novel of the same name. Starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris, the film centres on Nick Dunne (Affleck) as he is accused of murdering his wife Amy (Pike), following her seemingly unexplainable disappearance on their fifth anniversary.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in between the release of The Social Network and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Reznor explained the contrast between working on the two titles. He said at the time, “The Social Network was very much an education from start to finish. [Dragon Tattoo] felt a bit more like: ‘Ah, serial killers and anal raping, I know what that sounds like. It’s not as much of a stretch …’ Let me rephrase that -- a dark tone felt more familiar.”
The pair will hope to emulate their previous success with their next outing
