Trent Reznor Scores Social Network
David Fincher friends Nine Inch Nails

02 July 2010  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: NIN official site (via Collider)

The ominous teaser trailer started to give us some idea of what David Fincher had made of the Facebook drama, but now the "dark" angle seems confirmed, with the news that Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor has provided the soundtrack for The Social Network.

Reznor had some downtime planned to recover from touring and start noodling around with his next album. But, he says, "When I actually read the script I said goodbye to that."

Reznor has worked on soundtracks before (notably on Oliver Stone's Natural Born Killers and David Lynch's Lost Highway) but we think this is the first time he's provided an actual score. "I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story," he says. Us too. But, he assures us, clearly having seen a cut of it by now, "It's really fucking good!"  

The Social Network stars Jesse Eisenberg, Justin Timberlake, Aaron Sorkin and official new Spidey Andrew Garfield, in the story of "sex, money, genius and betrayal" behind the creation of Facebook at Harvard in the early 2000s. Aaron Sorkin wrote the script, and co-produced with Scott Rudin. It's out in the UK on the October 15. The soundtrack, "a satisfying record... or two" according to Reznor, should be out shortly before.

Thanks to Wadsworth for clearing that one up for me. I was trying to think which video it was he directed but now I remember. I always had a feeling it would be a great movie because of Fincher's highly sensitive b******t detector but this just confirms it even more... More

Tony Scott, move over . . .
Mr Scott has used loadsa NIN tracks (The Fan and Man On Fire especially), but ever since seeing Seven in the cinema, I've hankered after more to be used for Fincher's dark style. Especially as opposed to the likes of the recent Hitcher remake's completely inappropriate use of Closer. Check out Trent and his missus's new band at www.howtodestroyangels.com, there's a free EP of excellent new songs, some of which are easy to imagine on a soundtrack. More

... and Se7en.
... although not a score, don't forget that one of the many alternate versions of 'Closer' by Mr Reznor is the music at the beginning of Se7en. That's an obvious one, Empire. More

RE: Trent Reznor Scores Social Network
This is excellent news. Reznor did the score for the excellent atmospheric game Quake in the 90s but this will be his first full score. The brilliant soundscapes of Ghosts I-IV show his potential for creating a fantastic backdrop for a movie. More

should be good
I always thought Reznor would make an excellent film composer. Curious what he'll do with the score. Apparently he was also supposed to score "One Hour Photo" but his music got rejected. More
