After winning the Oscar for scoring The Social Network, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will be working together again with David Fincher, scoring the english language version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. One of the most popular tracks will surely be a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” with Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

In order to depict three distinct storylines and time periods — taking place in Mexico City during the World Cup in 2002, 2006, and 2010, respectively — “on a subliminal level,” writer/director Everardo Gout recruited three separate groups of composers for his new film, Days of Grace (Dias de Gracia): Nick Cave with Warren Ellis, Atticus Ross, and Shigeru Umebayashi.
Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in France this week, Gout’s film explores violence and police corruption through a fictional “breathlessly paced adrenaline rush,” according to one review. Gout enlisted Nick Cave and Warren Ellis for the ‘02 segment after hearing their work scoring The Proposition (the screenplay of which Cave also wrote) and The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. “They created a piece which superbly integrates sounds, noises, urban and animal backgrounds, that could have only been composed by them,” he said.
Atticus Ross worked on the score for the ‘06 story before famously winning an Academy Award this year with Trent Reznor for The Social Network. “He worked on the feeling of fear for the most part,” said Gout, “on something more visceral, more primal.”
