Reznor To Score The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to reteam with David Fincher for ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’.

Nine Inch Nails and Destroy All Angles musician Trent Reznor has revealed that he is scoring David Fincher‘s version of ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’. Reznor confirmed the collaboration during a livestream interview with New York Times’ Jon Pareles.


Durning the interview, Reznor described how he and his musical partner Atticus Ross got together with director David Fincher to score ‘The Social Network’ and how rewarding the experience was, citing that it was a “natural step forward” in his career, creating a musical atmosphere that has nothing to do with himself. He said he has been working on the score for ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ now for six weeks and explained how he took a different approach, focusing mostly on performances and an organic feel – more specifically, “nothing would be programmed” and how we’ll get to hear “his limited skills at stringed instruments.”


‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’ is the first film in Columbia Pictures’ three-picture adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s literary blockbuster The Millennium Trilogy. Starring Rooney Mara and Daniel Craig, the film is based on the first novel in the trilogy, which altogether have sold 50 million copies in 46 countries and become a worldwide phenomenon. The screenplay is by Steven Zaillian (‘Schindler’s List’, ‘American Gangster’).
