Trent Reznor, the guy who gave us melancholic hits like "Closer" and "Head Like a Hole," is scoring a movie — for Pixar.
The news came at Disney's D23 fan expo over the weekend. The Nine Inch Nails frontman will be teaming up with bandmate Atticus Ross to write the music for a new film called Soul. This isn't the first time the pair have collaborated on a movie score. In fact, they won an Academy Award for their work on The Social Network in 2010 and a Grammy for Girl With the Dragon Tattoo in 2013.
The new animated film stars Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Daveed Diggs, Questlove, and Phylicia Rashad as voice actors. As Variety describes, "'Soul' imagines that every person on earth comes pre-installed with a soul formed and perfected in a cosmic realm. Jamie Foxx will play a middle-school music teacher on earth who dreams of playing at legendary New York jazz club The Blue Note. After the wrong step into an open sewer grate, Joe slips back into his soul form back in the other realm — with some existential work to do before he might land his big gig."
Soul is slated to hit theaters June 19, 2020. Pixar tweeted out some concept art, which you can view below.
