Trent Reznor has said he would like to continue to his film score work by getting to grips with the music for more traditional Hollywood films.

The Nine Inch Nails man is celebrating an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score for his work on the The Social Network, an accolade he has described as "surreal, amazing and flattering".

Speaking to Hollywoodreporter.com, Reznor said of the film: "I didn’t realise it would resonate with people as much as it has. It's been amazing and flattering to see what's happened."

He said he would "absolutely" be interested in composing for more mainstream Hollywood films. "I'm interested in the discipline and I'm interested in the challenge of working in the more traditional sense," he said. "I look at working with [a traditional orchestra] as something I haven't done yet and I've always been intrigued by it. I would be up for that challenge."

He and co-composer Atticus Ross are currently writing the score for the Hollywood remake of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
