In 2009 Reznor announced the end of Nine Inch Nails as a touring entity indefinitely, citing a feeling of monotony and routine. Following the final Nine Inch Nails show in September of 2009, he stepped away from music for a little while, emerging at the end of the year to announce that he was to begin work on some projects for 2010. In February 2010 Reznor began work on an EP for a new project called [[How To Destroy Angels]], featuring himself, longtime collaborator [[Atticus Ross]], and [[Mariqueen Maandig]], a former singer from psychedelic band West Indian Girl. How To Destroy Angels released their self-titled EP for free on June 1, 2010, with a physical release available on July 6, 2010. That same year, [[David Fincher]] asked Reznor and Ross to compose the score for his forthcoming film ''[[The Social Network Soundtrack|The Social Network]],'' documenting the rise of Facebook. The score, and the film, will be released in late 2010.

On January 7, 2011, Reznor announced that he would once again be collaborating with Fincher by composing the soundtrack to the US film adaptation of the bestselling novel ''[[The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Soundtrack|The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo]].'' The film is scheduled to be released in theaters in December of 2011.
Today, Reznor is happier than he's ever been. He feels that he has found his calling in life and has found joy in creating music. Although he admits he could very easily relapse into his old ways, because he has been there, he has said he never wants to go back. He and his [[Mariqueen Maandig-Reznor|wife]] currently reside in Beverly Hills with their son and pet dogs.
