Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of rock band Nine Inch Nails have been commissioned to record the score for forthcoming Jonah Hill film ‘Mid90s’, according to reports.
The film, written and directed by Hill, follows 13-year-old Stevie over the course of the summer as he makes friends with a group of skaters. The film also stars Lady Bird‘s Lucas Hedges as Stevie’s older brother and Katherine Waterston as their mother.
The film marks the directorial debut for Hill, the coming-of-age skate culture film already being lined up for awards season.
Now, it is believed both Reznor and Ross have been selected to create the soundtrack.
For Reznor, the chance to score a leading feature film comes off the back of recent success. The Nine Inch Nails frontman scored Ken Burns’ documentary series The Vietnam War and also wrote a track for Banksy’s West Bank hotel.
Waterston, who doesn’t appear in the trailer, recently heaped praise on Hill’s directing skills, saying: “He is a brilliant director. The cast was incredible. Sunny Suljic plays my son, and he is one of the most extraordinary little creatures I have ever met. He is incredibly talented, very young and an amazing skateboarder and just a cool kid.”
Adding a summary of the film, Waterson added: “It is about a skateboarding kid, there’s also the family story that’s very intense and painful and complicated. I play the mum. But she’s not a typical mom. Lucas Hedges is my other son.”
