Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross are now streaming their score for the new David Fincher film The Killer. The movie features a screenplay written by Andrew Kevin Walker and stars Michael Fassbender in the title role alongside supporting cast Arliss Howard, Charles Parnell, Kerry O'Malley, Sala Baker, Sophie Charlotte, and Tilda Swinton.

"The Killer is my attempt to reconcile notions I've had for years about cinematic stories and their telling," said Fincher of the film. "I have always held: 'What were you doing in Chinatown?… As little as possible'—to be the single greatest evocation of backstory I've ever heard. I was also playfully curious about the revenge genre as a tension delivery-system.
"So when Mr. Walker came aboard and fully embraced these notions/ questions about broad brushstrokes of understanding giving way to the blind-stitch of 'moment expansion' – I felt we needed to try something. Mr. Fassbender's 3-hour response time for: 'Yes, let's!' sealed it for us both and, of course, we all wanted Tilda (Mr. Walker wrote it with her in mind—but please don't tell Ms. Swinton, she could become insufferable if she knows literally everyone feels this way about her.)"
