Trent Reznor will score David Fincher's Dragon Tattoo

Former Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor will be reuniting with David Fincher to score the director's upcoming redo of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo .

Reznor confirmed that he would be scoring the movie in a chat with Times Talks, which is extremely exciting news for anyone who loved The Social Network soundtrack. And who didn't?

His work on the Facebook movie was one of the most compelling scores of the year: pulsing techno beats helped drive the tense narrative, but he still found room for some haunting and touching tracks.

Only Daft Punk's TRON Legacy came close in terms of OST buzz last year.

Reznor seems like a perfect fit for Dragon Tattoo , on which he's been working for six weeks, and he has told fans to "expect something different".

Frankly we can't wait to see what he comes up for this one, which will surely be one of our most-anticipated soundtracks of the year.

Fincher's film is set for release in December 2011. Daniel Craig is starring as Mikael Blomkvist, while Rooney Mara nabbed the coveted role of Lisbeth Salander.
