While Atticus Ross is best known for his collaborations with Trent Reznor in Nine Inch Nails and of course on the soundtracks for "The Social Network" (which won them an Oscar) and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," he has ventured out on his own on more than one occassion. He has worked close with the Hughes Brothers, scoring their TV series "Touching Evil" (alongside his wife and brother, Claudia Sarne and Leopold Ross) as well as "The Book of Eli" and Albert's segment in "New York, I Love You." Ross also contributed to the excellent array of talent on the "Days of Grace" soundtrack. Well, he's once again striking out with a solo gig, and and it's one helluva blockbuster project.

Atticus Ross 47 Ronin

While Atticus Ross is best known for his collaborations with Trent Reznor in Nine Inch Nails and of course on the soundtracks for "The Social Network" (which won them an Oscar) and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," he has ventured out on his own on more than one occassion. He has worked close with the Hughes Brothers, scoring their TV series "Touching Evil" (alongside his wife and brother, Claudia Sarne and Leopold Ross) as well as "The Book of Eli" and Albert's segment in "New York, I Love You." Ross also contributed to the excellent array of talent on the "Days of Grace" soundtrack. Well, he's once again striking out with a solo gig, and and it's one helluva blockbuster project.

Film Music Reporter reveals that Ross will score Carl Erik Rinsch's upcoming 3D samaurai tale "47 Ronin." Starring Keanu Reeves, Rinko Kikuchi, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kou Shibasaki and Tadanobu Asano and penned by "Wanted" co-writer Chris Morgan, the film follows the story of the titular 47 warriors who, following the forced seppuku (ritual suicide by disembowelment) of their master after assaulting a court official, seek revenge on those who caused his death. Damn.

The addition of Ross is an intriguing one. It's his first period movie, and it certainly suggests that though Reeves will be wearing a robe and sandals, this won't be your ordinary samurai flick by any stretch of the imagination. The film has been kept under wraps for now, but with the November 21st release on the horizon, we'll hopefully start seeing some images and teasers very soon.
