Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross Are Scoring A Disney/Pixar Film, Soul

The Disney folks have heard The Downward Spiral, right?


Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross have made quite a career out of scoring films. They won an Academy Award for scoring David Fincher's The Social Network and in recent years scored projects like Mid90s and the upcoming Watchmen HBO series. But, I can't say I ever imagined they would be scoring a film for Disney/Pixar.

Disney announced at their big Disney’s D23 expo the latest Pixar film, Soul. The film is directed by Pete Docter (Monsters, Inc., Up, Inside Out). The movie will be released on June 19, 2020. It features the voices of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Daveed Diggs, Questlove, and Phylicia Rashad. Variety describes the plot as:

“’Soul’ imagines that every person on earth comes pre-installed with a soul formed and perfected in a cosmic realm. Jamie Foxx will play a middle-school music teacher on earth who dreams of playing at legendary New York jazz club The Blue Note. After the wrong step into an open sewer grate, Joe slips back into his soul form back in the other realm — with some existential work to do before he might land his big gig.”

How the hell would Reznor and Ross get involved with a film like this? The Disney folks have heard The Downward Spiral, right? Perhaps, that's the mood the director of the film was looking for?

Either way, this is quite a development and we'll keep you posted if any music surfaces.
