Update: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have been approached to write an original score for the film, but no deal is yet in place.
Oscar-winning dynamic duo Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross may team up again to create the score for director Trey Edwards Shults’ musical drama Waves. The pair, who shared an Oscar for Best Original Score in 2011 for their work on The Social Network have been approached to provide the music for the film starring This Is Us Emmy winner Sterling K. Brown and Oscar nominee Lucas Hedges (Lady Bird). (Billboard originally reported that the duo had been confirmed, but THR later updated their story to reflect the ongoing negotiations.)
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film is described as a coming-of-age tale that tells two contrasting teen love stories focusing on both suburban teenagers and their parents. The movie, the follow-up to Shults’ acclaimed It Comes By Night, is slated to begin filming in South Florida soon. Nine Inch Nails leader Reznor and Ross previously teamed on for the Grammy-winning soundtrack to 2013’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo as well 2014’s Gone Girl and 2016’s Before the Flood.
