Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross record score for Jonah Hill’s ‘Mid90s’

It's hitting cinemas in October...

Nine Inch Nails Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have reportedly teamed up to record the score for Mid90s, the directorial debut from Jonah Hill.

The film is set for release in October, and tells the story of  Stevie (Sunny Suljic) a 13-year-old boy in 1990s LA who forms a deep friendship with a group of skaters as he attempts to escape his tumultuous home life and an abusive older brother.

It also features an ensemble cast that includes Lucas Hedges,Gio Galicia, Na-kel Smith, Alexa Demie, Ryder McLaughlin, Katherine Waterston and Olan Prenatt.

Although the specific details of Reznor and Ross’ score are yet to be revealed, it’s the latest chapter in their acclaimed work for the big screen. In 2010, the pair won an Academy Award for Best Original Score, after collaborating with David Fincher on The Social Network. Their relationship with Fincher then extended to his next two films – creating acclaimed scores for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Gone Girl. 

Earlier this month, Reznor revealed his “near-death experience” on a harrowing plane journey travelling from Coachella to Las Vegas. The frontman was sat with Atticus Ross when the plane suddenly plummeted. 

Back in June, the band released ‘Bad Witch’, their ninth studio album.

In a five-star reviewNME wrote: “A triptych of a record, ‘Bad Witch’ spans all of NIN’s many sides. From clattering industrial sonics to expansive, soaring soundscapes, via free jazz and mutating electronica, it’s the sound of a band bolstering their already formidable palette.”
