[pitchfork.com] As the NIN Hotline points out, today, the Nine Inch Nails website's news feed featured a message from Trent Reznor announcing that he and longtime collaborator Atticus Ross have written the score for David Fincher's new film The Social Network, which is about the founding of Facebook. It stars Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, Rashida Jones, and Justin Timberlake.
Reznor writes, "I've always loved David's work but quite honestly I wondered what would draw him to tell that story. When I actually read the script and realized what he was up to, I said goodbye to that free time I had planned." He also mentions that he and Ross are currently in the process of "distilling the large amount of music we've written for this down to a satisfying record (or two)." He adds, "The film opens October 1 in the U.S. with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that."
Reznor calls the film "really fucking good. And dark!" I gotta admit, I'm extremely curious to see how Fincher turns the story of a bunch of nerds sitting at computers into something that Trent Reznor considers "dark." Watch the trailer for The Social Network below:
