The last time Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor and musician Atticus Ross teamed up to make a movie soundtrack, they took home the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media award at the 2013 Grammys for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Before that, the dynamic duo won the Academy Award in 2011 for Best Original Score for their work on The Social Network soundtrack.

Now, Reznor has announced that he will again get together with Ross to produce the soundtrack to upcoming David Fincher film, Gone Girl. Reznor made the news public with a simple tweet.

Gone Girl is based on the best-selling 2012 novel penned by author Gillian Flynn. The film adaptation will feature Ben Affleck, Neil Patrick Harris and model Emily Ratajkowski, who’s best known for starring in Robin Thicke‘s controversial music video for 2013 smash hit, “Blurred Lines.”

The author has already warned fans of the book that the film will deviate from the original material (particularly in regards to the ending), with the story of a missing wife being told in a more straightforward fashion than presented in the twist-laden book.

This will be the third time director Fincher has worked with Reznor and Ross, with Fincher behind the lens for both The Social Network and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Ross and Reznor have also worked together as members of the band How to Destroy Angels, which features Reznor’s wife, Mariqueen Maandig.

Gone Girl is scheduled to hit big screens across America on Oct. 3, 2014.
