Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will provide the score for Patriots Day, the forthcoming film based on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. Director Peter Berg announced the duo’s involvement in a recent Instagram post.
“I couldn’t be more honored than to be working with these two straight up genius artists,” Berg wrote beneath a photo of Reznor and Ross. The pair have previously collaborated on the Oscar-winning score for The Social Network and the Grammy-winning score for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, as well as scores for Gone Girl and Leonardo DiCaprio’s new climate-change documentary Before the Flood. Reznor is also tied to the upcoming third season of David Lynch’s Twin Peaks, though his exact involvement in the show is unclear.
Patriots Day centers around the police investigation into the bombing and stars Mark Wahlberg, John Goodman, J.K. Simmons, Kevin Bacon, and Michelle Monaghan. It’s expected in limited release on December 21, with a wide release to follow on January 13, 2017. See Berg’s Instagram post below. [Stereogum]
