Trent Reznor Writing Score for "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"
Reznor's Golden Globe win points to promise.
It's true what the news sites are saying this morning: Trent Reznor, the former Nine Inch Nails frontman, has come back for a second life as a film composer. Here are details on the latest report after last night's Golden Globes win -- Reznor is scoring the Stieg Larsson book-to-film adaptation of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo."
Where has 45-year-old Trent Reznor been for the last few years? Nine Inch Nails, which was conceived in 1989, went a little under the radar after their massive success in the late 1990s (when Reznor also worked on the scores for 1994's "Natural Born Killers" and 1997's "Lost Highways."

But in 2007 Nine Inch Nails came together to put out an album, "Year Zero," to accompany an alternate reality game by the same name. In April 2010 Reznor announced that he'd formed a band with his wife, Meriqueen Maandig, and they released an album.
But the surprise came when a cleaned-up Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross won Sunday's Golden Globe award for the best musical score in a film for their work on "The Social Network." Reznor said in his Golden Globes acceptance speech that it was just a short time ago that he'd been picked up for the project, and he was seriously humbled that the Hollywood Foreign Press had picked him for the prize..

So in more awesomeness, "Billboard" has published a report that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will team up again to compose the score for "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." Trent descibed his approach with this: "We started recording things in a different way that was all based on performance -- nothing programmed ... That would be my limited skills with stringed instruments ... We'd process them in a way that really gave it an interesting, organic feel that felt like something we've never done before."
Seems like the perfect gig fit, doesn't it?
