Last year, David Fincher convinced Trent Reznor to score his latest film. The result earned itself a Golden Globe nomination and an Oscar for The Social Network, as well as a sequel.

Well, a sequel in the form of another collaboration between the acclaimed filmmaker and Nine Inch Nails figurehead Reznor. During a live discussion with The New York Times‘Times Talk earlier tonight, Reznor confirmed that he and longtime collaborator Atticus Ross will be scoring Fincher’s forthcoming remake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The film, which stars Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, is due for release on December 21, 2011.

Unlike in Social Network, in which he utilized electronic oriented sounds, Reznor said that the score for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will be performance based, featuring string elements. He used words such as “ice” and “frozen” to describe the project’s inspiration (via Filmonic).

Along with the score, Reznor confirmed plans for the forthcoming release of How to Destroy Angels full length debut and “some greatest hits bullshit” that Nine Inch Nails owes its former label, Interscope Records. As for the future of his celebrated projected, Reznor did not rule out future material and touring under the NIN moniker.
