Trent Reznor Assures No Animosity Over Axing of ‘The Woman in the Window’ Score

When addressing the scrapping of the work he and Atticus Ross have done for Joe Wright’s new thriller, the movie composer admits despite the frustration, the two of them were proud of the music.

AceShowbiz -In-demand movie composers Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross‘ score for director Joe Wright’s new thriller “The Woman in the Window” has been axed.

The Oscar-winning pair behind “The Social Network” and “Watchmen” music, created an “avant-garde” score for the adaptation, which stars Amy Adams as an agoraphobic woman who witnesses a crime, but Wright decided the music didn’t quite fit in post-production.

“It (film) underwent a transformation after some testing audiences,” Reznor tells Revolver. “There’s no animosity on our end.

“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.”

“The Woman in the Window” was originally set for release earlier this year (2019), but after Fox was bought by Disney, executives decided the film needed some work, upsetting screenwriter Tracy Letts.

Reznor also opened up about his experience creating the music for last year’s Netflix hit “Bird Box“, insisting he and Ross were stuck with a film editor with “real bad taste”.

“We were on tour when they mixed it and they mixed the music so low, you couldn’t hear it anyway. So it was like, that was a… f**king waste of time,” he rages. “Then we thought, no one’s going to see this f**king movie. And, of course, it’s the hugest movie ever in Netflix (history).”

Reznor and Ross are currently working on music for director David Fincher‘s next movie “Mank“.
