First Trent Reznor’s Beats Music service hits the scene and now this: Mr. Nine Inch Nails himself will be scoring David Fincher’s cinematic adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl.” We have goosebumps already.
Tuesday (January 21), Reznor took to Twitter to announce the partnership, writing: “and yes, Atticus and I are scoring David Fincher’s upcoming Gone Girl!”

Reznor and collaborator Atticus Ross previously worked with Fincher on the score for “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” and “The Social Network,” the latter of which earned them an Oscar.
The NIN frontman is the latest addition to the upcoming flick, which tells the tale of Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck), a depressed writer who becomes the leading suspect in the disappearance and possible murder of his wife Amy (Rosamund Pike).
Much of the adaptation’s future is still in the shadows, though, as according to Flynn, the powerhouse ending of the book received a makeover for the big screen. Whatever the outcome, however, we’re sure Reznor will add an appropriate layer of gloom.
“It was interesting for me to not be boss,” Reznor told Mashable when he signed on to work on “The Social Network,” the first flick he scored in its entirety. “I’m not the top of the pyramid here. So, I enjoyed the role of working for someone, for someone else’s vision.”
We’re excited to see what the combined visions of Fincher, Flynn and Reznor will produce when the film premieres in October. Until then, we’ll sleep with the lights on in preparation.
