Facebook + David Fincher + Nine Inch Nails = ?

Trent Reznor has written the score for David Fincher’s The Social Network, which is all about Facebook. While Fincher has not made a film worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Fight Club since he made, um, Fight Club, since he actually made Fight Club, I still get excited whenever he has a movie coming. And I’m fascinated to hear what Trent will bring to a film score. Pitchfork reports:

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.” He also mentions that he and Ross are currently in the process of “distilling the large amount of music we’ve written for this down to a satisfying record (or two).” He adds, “The film opens October 1 in the U.S. with the record likely available a couple of weeks ahead of that.”

Reznor calls the film “really fucking good. And dark!” I gotta admit, I’m extremely curious to see how Fincher turns the story of a bunch of nerds sitting at computers into something that Trent Reznor considers “dark.”
