Trent Reznor has announced that he and How to Destroy Angels collaborator Atticus Ross have written the score for upcoming Facebook film The Social Network.
The film tells the story of how Facebook was founded and is directed by David Fincher ( Fight Club, Se7en ). Cast members include Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield, and Justin Timberlake.
Reznor made the announcement on the Nine Inch Nails website writing that “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.”
“As Atticus and I near the end of the scoring process, we’re looking forward to the next phase – distilling the large amount of music we’ve written for this down to a satisfying record (or two).
