Trent Reznor to Score 'The Social Network,' the Facebook Film That'll Be Dark as Heck

Trent ReznorThe beginning of David Fincher's masterpiece 'Se7en' is bleak and haunting, one of the most memorable moments in the film. It not only lays the thematic groundwork for the rest of the movie, but, at the time of its release, changed the way credit sequences could be created. The grinding, gritty music trudging through the background is a lesser-known edit of Nine Inch Nails' mega-hit "Closer" (which this writer, in the grips of pubescent NIN obsession, decided to tell everyone in the movie theater when she identified it.) You can check it out after the break.

Trent Reznor and Fincher will meet again for Fincher's 'The Social Network,' a portrayal of the rise of Facebook and its founder, Mark Zuckerberg. What initially started as an eye-roll inducing movie is panning out to be quite interesting. 'West Wing' writer Aaron Sorkin took the helm of the script, Fincher (who also did 'Fight Club') is directing, and now Reznor is going to score the movie. On a hiatus from Nine Inch Nails, 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." Reznor is no stranger to scores (providing the one bright spot to the lackluster PC game 'Quake'), but this one seems especially interesting. As Reznor reveals about the film, "It's really f***king good. And dark!" From the guy who worked on the scores for 'Natural Born Killers' and 'Lost Highway,' that's saying quite a bit.
