Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross to Score Fincher’s Gone GirlJanuary 21, 2014 • By Sasha Stone
If you’ve never listened to Trent Reznor and Atticus’ Ross unbelievable score to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo you are missing, what I’ve always thought was, the definitive score of a film. It’s certainly up there with the Last Temptation of Christ (meant to say, thanks KT), Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, etc. Their score for The Social Network won the Oscar and is a score I listen to at least once a week. So it is fantastic news to hear that Reznor/Ross will be scoring Fincher’s upcoming Gone Girl. Fincher has already shown he is doing this movie his way (of course) and not trying to just bring the beloved book to the big screen with the morbid twist on John and Yoko. It’s already “out there” that the ending is going to be different. It seems to me that using Reznor/Ross adds a layer that wouldn’t ordinarily be there because Fincher allows the score to be as prominent as a character in the film. So this is hot stuff to hear on a Tuesday.
