'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'

Trent Reznor has agreed to score the forthcoming film version of 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'.

Nine Inch Nails came to a natural conclusion in 2008. Playing an enormous world tour with Jane's Addiction, the industrial Godheads decided to end their career with a series of tiny shows in Los Angeles.

Since then, Trent Reznor has become a veritable Renaissance man. Launching a series of new projects, the songwriter was invited to score the acclaim film 'The Social Network' - which documented the rise of Facebook.

An international success, the soundtrack was a world away from Nine Inch Nails industrial meltdown. Rewarded with warm acclaim, Trent Reznor was recently nominated at the Golden Globes for the score.

Now in an interview with New York Times the songwriter has confirmed his involvement with a new film project.

Trent Reznor is set to work on the soundtrack for 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo'. Due for release at the end of this year, the film is based on the best selling book of the same name.

Collaborating with producer Atticus Ross, the pair are putting together the partnership which fuelled 'The Social Network'. Directed by David Fincher, the new version of 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' is set to be released on December 21st.

Meanwhile, work is continuing on Reznor's new group. Formed with his wife Maureen Maandig, How To Destroy Angels have been working on their debut album since the demise of Nine Inch Nails.

Currently in the studio, Reznor has kept the project low key and has so far refused to confirm a release date for the debut album.

'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' has a scheduled release date for December 21st.
