It's probably not, but to be fair, Rear Window has been ripped off by so many filmmakers at this point.

It's based on a book, which is described by the author himself as 'Hitchcockinan', so there you go.

Apparently the film was moved to 2020

I wonder if TRAR are still on board after this move. How early or late in the game the score is typically recorded?

I'm no expert on movie development, but five days of re-shoots shouldn't impact the score at all.

It depends on how involved the composers are with the filmmakers and how complex the score is. Composers can be creating pieces for the film before they even start shooting (ala The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) or it could be one of the last things that gets done for the film.

That's a shame. Wonder if the delay is what did it, or if there's something more going on behind the scenes with the movie.

Unrelated, but the author of the book this movie's based on is a real shithead.

this is like when everyone found out that james frey lied his ass off writing a million little pieces...

this guy sounds insane. and as someone who has bipolar ii, i can assure you the shit he's done is not in line with that diagnosis alone.

On that note, I'm closing the thread in this particular subforum - please continue in Le Cinema should you be interested in further discussion about the film.

I’m just going to reopen this thread because of the new news that the entire score was completed and then they bowed out of the production when the film changed course:

https://www.revolvermag.com/music/nine-inch-nails-9-things-we-learned-our-visit-trent-reznors-studio


Speaking to his and Ross' work for TV and film, Reznor revealed that the duo completed "an avant-garde score" for the Joe Wright–directed movie The Woman in the Window, starring Amy Adams and due to hit theaters in May 2020. But the film "underwent a transformation after some testing audiences," according to Reznor, and so the two decided to "bow out." "There's no animosity on our end," he added. "It's frustrating when you did that much work and it's gone. And we were proud — and they were proud — of the movie that it was."

I wonder if they'll ever release that score or if it'll just sit in the vault forever. Maybe they can strip it for parts, so to speak, and some of it will pop up in other scores down the road.

Considering how proud Trent & Atticus seem to be of the score, I can't help but think that it'll pop up in SOME form eventually.

The fact that they put as much love & care into Bird Box Extended (apparently a poor working experience) makes me think they will put some effort into getting Woman heard, especially knowing they were actually proud of the movie, too, and not just the music. I'm just curious what the most likely scenario is. A leak? A "re-purposing" a la Still? A re-purposing for another film?

In any case, I take strange comfort in knowing that they were proud of the work and the movie. At least there's that.

That's up to Disney/Fox. If it was fully completed (or at least the majority of the work was done) and incorporated into the film before the studio got cold feet, then the studio owns the music and can do what they want with it. I suppose if Trent & Atticus were really happy with what they did and wanted to fight to release it in some form, they could go about doing so. It sounds to me like they're already moving on from it though.

Maybe this is the perfect opportunity for a second Still-type release?

It would be great to throw the whole unused outtakes folder at some of those potential collaborators on the list of people TR mentioned in Revolver magazine, and see if they pick up and run with anything that didn't previously make the cut from any of their prior projects.

Wow, I didn't realize they did work on it I just thought they passed on it so they could do Watchmen.

Great. So they’ve made this incredibly disorienting, Coil-esque avant-garde score that’s just collecting dust on a shelf next to Tapeworm somewhere. I want to hear this shit more than ever now..

Especially considering Bird Box was a miserable experience for them and at the same time is quickly becoming one of my favorite scores they’ve done yet..

Its a real shame, we can only hope that their contract allows them to release the music in some way themselves, or that it somehow leaks rather than just sitting on a shelf.

Interesting development. Disney are now selling this film, negotiating with Netflix. Bit annoying they made all those changes then sold it anyway. I get the impression Netflix would have been fine with a more avant garde tone

Still adamant in my belief that Locusts is actually what was supposed to be the score for this film, from the track names to the overall atmosphere of the music right down to how Trent and Atticus described the score in the Dec/Jan issue of Revolver..

A musician who previously worked on a movie and left before it was finished should leak the movie? how would that work?

Hi guys!
What an awful confusion with this movie. I have read the book - I liked it. I was waiting for the movie release as I like the cast. Another awesome information was the score with Reznor at the helm. And then it all went to hell. First Trent was replaced. I like Danny Elfman but pleaseeeee. So now you are telling me the movie is going to Netflix? Huh. Interesting. Do you know where I can find the original score written by Trent Reznor? (I am in Europe).

Heads up, @CharlieBrown (https://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=7576), this is not confirmed but it a prominent fan theory that has some supporting evidence in the track titles.

Is it possible that they just can't legally confirm that music as The Woman scrapped score for some reason?

Prettybrokenspiral
08-10-2020, 09:45 PM
Of course it’s possible..

What was Disney going to do with a score that didn’t fit with the movie they chose to go with? They had likely already paid Trent and Atticus for their work, or perhaps a portion of what they were owed. Rather than just flush the score and walk away, they were likely given the option of buying back the rights with the stipulation that they would not allude, imply or outright state that the music was the WITW score when they chose to release it..

They probably already had Ghosts: Together compiled or a rough idea of what it would be, if that volume is in fact leftover pieces of material that didn’t find a home in a previous score or NIN album. That’s also why Locusts sounds like a fully-formed and complete album of work in comparison..

BRoswell
08-10-2020, 10:30 PM
My belief is that the albums might have had their origin in the score, but they didn't just throw out what they did for the film and call it a day. I could see them using what they did as a starting point and expanding from there. Because of Disney's involvement, odds are we're never going to know for sure.

So I just skipped through this and, A. the music they went with is boring as fuck, B. some of Ghosts V and VI were ABSOLUTELY intended to score this film. Might have made it better.

I watched it. Another book-into-movie that didn't need to be made. Even the almighty Gary Oldman and Anthony Mackie couldn't save this one. I'm just glad we got the original score from it..

Now that I've seen the movie, could you please elaborate on why you think this to be the case? I don't disagree, I'm just curious to know your thoughts on why/how this may be the case.
