Trent Reznor and David Fincher are making beautiful music together, again.
The Nine Inch Nails front man has confirmed that he is scoring Fincher's upcoming adaptation of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," and has already been hard at work on the film for about six weeks with Atticus Ross.
Reznor and Ross first sunk their teeth into Fincher's celluloid world when they scored the director extraordinaire's 2010 blockbuster "The Social Network."
Reznor said to expect something different this time around, and described the new score as "focusing mostly on performances and an organic feel." More specifically, he promised that "nothing would be programmed" and we'll get to hear his "limited skills at stringed instruments," Slash Film recounts.
Limited skills or not, if Reznor delivers a score comparable to his last, "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" is almost certain to strike a chord with eager fans.
Fincher has a blowout cast including Daniel Craig, Rooney Mara, Christopher Plummer, Robin Wright and Stellan Skarsgard—and a captivating score will only make their performances feel that much richer.
The film is currently shooting in Sweden, as well as a Los Angeles soundstage.
It races into theaters Dec. 21.
