Back in July, it was announced that Jonah Hill was making his directorial debut, with a new film Mid90s. The coming-of-age drama is a story about youth, skateboarding and family drama.

In an interview with Collider, Hill had this to say:

“It’s sort of like a coming-of-age drama — it’s the most boring elevator pitch in the world, but it takes place in a skateboarding scene in the mid-90s in L.A.” He explained. “Skateboarding’s always been put on screen as a joke or an 80s cowabunga kind of trope, and it’s more in the tone of Kids or This Is England. Those are kind of the movies that I’m influenced by the most.”

It has just been confirmed by Pitchfork that Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails have scored the film. It is the duos first film soundtrack since 2016’s Patriots Day. 

Reznor and Ross have previously won an Academy Award for Best Score for their work on The Social Network.
