    Whoa. I actually liked It Comes At Night (which faced significant backlash because of "misleading" marketing) but this sounds completely different from that, or anything Trent and Atticus have scored before, and if this is true I have no idea what to expect. Exciting.

    The really interesting part-it is a musical. So Reznor/Ross might have a bigger part in this than what they have scored in the past, even if "some iconic contemporary songs" are used. Considering that they have already signed on before some of the actors, it wouldn't surprise me if they have already composed some music for the film as part of pre-production preparations. Unusual for most films, but musicals are not most films.

    This already sounds awesome. I can't wait to hear this.

    The ETA would probably be late next year, right? Or even later, considering most of the cast hasn't been selected yet?

    According the article above:

    "Update (July 3): The original report stating Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross will be scoring “Wavesis not confirmed yet. A producer on the project says a deal with the duo is not finalized."

    Will probably happen but not "official" yet.

    Are we talking a production like "Across the universe" or like "Into the wild"?

    Into the Wild wasn't a musical?

    I will keep my mind open until I see something like a trailer, but of all of their score projects, this is the one I find least exciting. I'm just not usually too interesting in musicals, I guess. Speaking of musicals, I'd love to hear more about that Fight Club musical that Chuck Palahniuk was supposedly trying to talk Trent into doing.

    No, 'Into The Wild' wasn't a musical; but I think of it as more than just a simple soundtrack... maybe its just me. On the other hand 'ATU' was a full out musical and I guess it's just hard for me to wrap my head around the idea of TR producing a musical...

    Lead Male: "No! Not Me! It was not ever me! It was never me in that mirrorrrRRRrrRRrr!"
    Lead Female: "Oh no! Oh no! The cracks have opened up! Can't run. Cant Run. Inside me he will be!"
    Lead Male: "She's gone"

    There are more serious musicals in existence. Les Mis is a good example, or Dancer in the Dark. Others include recent movies like La La Land and Sing Street. I could totally see a more serious musical along those lines.

    I have a feeling Trent & Atticus may be providing score material only and not actually writing any of the songs.

    Based on his responses at the Chicago record store interview done last year, Trent kinda sounded like he WOULD be willing to participate, i kinda got the impression that he's just waiting on others to green light the project and it moves along before he commits to it.

    I've been thinking about this... "A Minute to Breathe" showed that they're capable of writing a song to fit a narrative subject. It would be very interesting to hear a whole storyline with other characters singing TR's lyrics.
