AUDIO: Trent Reznor covers Led Zeppelin for upcoming film

There’s going to be some Led Zeppelin in the air this winter.

Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor is composing the music for “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” the upcoming American film adaptation of Stieg Larsson's best-selling book.

Reznor is reuniting with longtime songwriting partner Atticus Ross for the project, which is being directed by David Fincher (The Social Network). Daniel Craig (the latest James Bond) is one of the lead characters in the movie, which also features Christopher Plummer and Robin Wright.

In a newly-surfaced trailer for the film, the accompanying soundtrack features Reznor and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O covering the Led Zeppelin classic, “Immigrant Song.”

“The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” is scheduled to open this December.
