Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Are Scoring HBO's 'Watchmen' Series
Tomorrow (September 21) marks a full calendar year since HBO announced that Damon Lindelof would be helming a TV adaptation of beloved DC Comics series Watchmen. Now, the network has confirmed the series will feature music from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.

"For 30 years, we've known what Watchmen looks like… but what does It SOUND like?" Lindelof wrote in an Instagram post confirming the news. "I called HBO while we were still writing the pilot and begged them to consider pursuing the brilliant Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross as composers. 'That's so weird…' HBO responded, 'They just called US asking about Watchmen.'"

Lindelof continued: "Turns out Trent and Atticus are as big fans of the original masterwork as I am of Trent and Atticus. Their music, from NIN to Social Network to Vietnam is original, visceral, and deeply emotional. And so, it is with great excitement and gratitude for the thermodynamic miracle that brought us together to announce that Watchmen officially sounds like THEM."

Reznor and Ross have recently been tapped to score Jonah Hill's Mid90s, Trey Edward Shults' Waves, Ken Burns's Vietnam War documentary and Leonardo DiCaprio climate change doc Before the Flood.
