    Mank (2020)

    Fincher is doing Mank for Netflix. Filming to start this fall. As of this typing, Reznor/Ross have not been named as composers of the score, but it seems likely. The only reason I have any doubts is that this is a black and white biopic that will mostly take place in the 1930s and 40s. Not the type of subject matter that one would associate with an electronic score--and maybe it won't be. By the way, TR has stated his admiration for the Taxi Driver score, composed by Bernard Herrmann, who composed the score for Citizen Kane.

    Still not an official announcement but Gabi Ruiz, director of Primavera Sound, mentioned in an interview that TR+AR are scoring Fincher's next movie.
    World War Z 2 was reportedly cancelled, so it can only be this one

    It's pretty much official. TR is aiming for a "period appropriate" score, rather than an electronic score. No modular synths.

    This is pretty exciting! I'm eager to see them step further outside their comfort zone with this score.

    Six Degrees of Trent Reznor: Bernard Herrmann did the score for Citizen Kane. He also did the music for the Twilight Zone episode, "Where Is Everybody?".

    This can end up being really cool, it definitely has my interest piqued.

    I found an interesting site that has electronic instruments from 1930-1940 and I can totally see Trent and Atticus rocking out to this contraption - the Marimbalite from 1935

    I hope this is a full-on orchestra. Their quirks in what they do with the electronic instruments could translate to some of the strange noises you can make with classical instruments.

    Netflix has ramped up limited theatrical releases in an effort to increase their legitimacy for industry awards.

    Also, Germany and/or France have a (decent) chance of seeing a physical release for this.

    Maybe in the US too. Criterion is putting out Roma in February, and I'm sure Scorsese will want some kind of home video release for The Irishman.

    I wonder if they consider using theremin. And if Charlie would be up for collaboration on this.

    I'm here because of a joke I just read. "I'm thinking about selling my theremin. I haven't touched it in years."
