Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor and English musician Atticus Ross will put their knack for chilly, moody soundscapes to use once again in director David Fincher's upcoming thriller "Gone Girl," an adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel about a man whose wife disappears on their fifth anniversary and leaves him as the prime suspect.

Reznor and Ross have worked together on a number of NIN albums and also crafted the scores for two previous Fincher films: "The Social Network" (2010) and "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" (2011). The former film won the Oscar for best original score, and the latter won the Grammy for best score soundtrack for visual media.

Reznor confirmed the trio's latest collaboration on Twitter, writing, "and yes, Atticus and I are scoring David Fincher’s upcoming Gone Girl!"

The film stars Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris and Emily Ratajkowski. Flynn is writing the screen adaptation of her 2012 book, which sold more than 2 million copies in its first year.

Back in 2011 Reznor spoke to The Times about working with Fincher. "David is interested in making movies that can appeal to people, but not in a way in which he's catering, dumbing down," he said, adding, "I felt the same with NIN. I made music that I thought was uncompromising, but a lot of people appeared to like it."

"Gone Girl" is scheduled for release Oct. 3 from 20th Century Fox.
