Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and his creative partner Atticus Ross are quickly becoming the hottest composers on the market. However, they had to depart the long-awaited 20th Century Fox film The Woman in the Window.
In a recent interview with Revolver, Reznor revealed that he and Ross bowed out after the films negative test screening reactions, which led to extensive reshoots, and the filming becoming something brand new altogether.
”There’s no animosity on our end. It’s frustrating when you did that much work and it’s gone. And we were proud – and they were proud – of the movie that it was.”
Danny Elfman (Batman, Dumbo) will takeover scoring duties on the project. As for Reznor and Ross, the duo are currently having success with their work on HBO’s Watchmen, and up next will be scoring Pixar’s upcoming film Soul.

The film also stars Gary Oldman (Darkest Hour), Anthony Mackie (Avengers: Endgame), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Brian Tyree Henry (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse), and Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street).
