When it was announced that Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails fame would be doing the music to David Fincher’s The Social Network, audiences began to realize that the film may a bit more than just “the facebook movie”. When the film was released, Reznor’s score was met with wild enthusiasm, and it looks like Fincher liked what he heard as well. Reznor has confirmed that he and his Social Network scoring partner Atticus Ross are doing the score for the director’s next film, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which he’s currently filming in Sweden.
Reznor confirmed the news on a podcast with The New York Times’ Jon Pareles. Fincher’s adaptation of the first book in Steig Larsson’s “Millenium Trilogy” stars The Social Network’s Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, Robin Wright, Stellan Skarsgard, and Christopher Plummer. At the moment, Fincher’s on a break from filming in order to promote the Blu-Ray/DVD release of The Social Network (as well as get in some nice pre-Oscar facetime), which hits stores on Tuesday. If you haven’t already, be sure to check out Steve’s exclusive interview with Fincher from last week. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will hit theaters on December 21st.
