This comes straight from the horse’s mouth—earlier today, Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) tweeted that he and Atticus Ross will be composing the music for David Fincher’s Gone Girl, an upcoming film based on the bestselling 2012 novel of the same name by Gillian Flynn. Reznor’s tweet:
and yes, Atticus and I are scoring David Fincher’s upcoming Gone Girl!— Trent Reznor (@trent_reznor) January 21, 2014
Gone Girl is the story of a former journalist and his wife, Nick and Amy Dunne, who escape from New York City to small-town Missouri, where Nick uses the last of Amy’s trust fund to start a bar. They make a living, but the marriage continues to fall apart until the day when Amy goes missing and Nick becomes a prime suspect in her disappearance. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike star as the couple, while Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry co-star.
Reznor and Ross are no strangers to the movie business; together, they produced the soundtracks for two previous Fincher films, The Social Network and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, winning an Academy Award for Best Original Score for the former, and a Grammy for the latter. Earlier in his career, Reznor created soundtracks for Oliver Stone’s Natural Born Killers (1994) and David Lynch’s Lost Highway (1997).
