Published Jan 21, 2014Nine Inch Nails leader Trent Reznor and his How to Destroy Angels collaborator Atticus Ross earned widespread accolades with their scores for David Fincher's last two movies, 2010's The Social Network and 2011's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. It's no surprise, then, to learn that Reznor and Ross are scoring Fincher's next film as well.
Today (January 21), Reznor tweeted, "yes, Atticus and I are scoring David Fincher's upcoming Gone Girl!"
The details of the soundtrack are still unknown, but we're guessing that there will be plenty more chilly electronic mood pieces.

Gone Girl is a thriller starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike. Missi Pyle, Neil Patrick Harris, Patrick Fugit and Tyler Perry. Due out on October 3, it's based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn. It's about a woman who goes missing on her wedding anniversary and her husband becomes a suspect.
In related news, Reznor and Dr. Dre's streaming service Beats Music has officially launched in the U.S. To mark the occasion, Nine Inch Nails released the new Seed Eight remix EP exclusively through the service. Unfortunately, Beats Music isn't yet available in Canada, so it doesn't do us much good on this side of the border.
Nine Inch Nails will also take part in a collaborative performance with Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl, and Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham at this year's Grammy Awards. The ceremony takes place on January 26.
