Trent Reznor - The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Fragile re-release and How To Destroy Angels news

Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor has big plans for 2011. First off he has agreed to score the next David Fincher film: a remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Unlike the last score for The Social Network, this will be more conventional with a 'live' performance feel and 'strings'. Not sure if this is a good thing or not as TSN was a great follow-up to the instrumental Ghosts project. Reznor is again working with Atticus Ross on the soundtrack.

Reznor's current side project How To Destroy Angels (again with Ross and Reznor's wife Mariqueen Maandig) is set to release a full-length debug this year. Again, the follow-up to the band's great EP will be different and more 'beat and rhythm oriented' and a complete contrast to the TSN soundtrack.

As for Nine Inch Nails obligations, Reznor has talked about having to compile a 'greatest hits' album but also a 'deluxe' edition of the much maligned The Fragile. The exact form of this new version is unknown but producer Alan Moulder is in charge of a new surround sound mix. And he has said that Nine Inch Nails is not over and even suggested a future NIN tour.
