Visual Storytellers! Nominations for 25th Annual American Society of Cinematographers 

Roger Deakins (pictured), who beautifully shot "True Grit" for the Coen brothers, received his ninth nomination from the American Society of Cinematographers (ASC). Deakins will be competing with Matthew Libatique ("Black Swan"), Wally Pfister ("Inception"), Danny Cohen ("The King's Speech"), and Jeff Cronenweth ("The Social Network").

Deakins won ASC awards for 1994's "The Shawshank Redemption" and 2001's "The Man Who Wasn't There" but he has not won an Oscar yet. He was previously nominated for an ASC award for the following films: "Fargo" (1997), "Kundun" (1998), "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" (2001), "No Country for Old Men" (2008), "The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford" (2008), "Revolutionary Road" (2009) and "The Reader" (2009).

Deakins will also be honored as the recipient of the ASC's 2011 Lifetime Achievement Award.

Cohen, Cronenweth and Libatique are all first-time nominees but this is the third nomination for Pfister who previously received nods for "Batman Begins" (2006) and "The Dark Knight" (2009).

According to Awards Committee Chairman Richard Crudo, the five nominees have set the standard for today's cinematography. “Although they were nominated for a variety of films, they share the common denominator of extraordinary talent and good taste. Just their mere presence on set would elevate any production” Crudo says.

The winner of the 25th Annual American Society of Cinematographers (ASC) Outstanding Achievement Awards will be announced on February 13.

Trent Reznor Returns to David Fincher's Loving Arms for "Dragon Tattoo" 

Trent Reznor, together with Atticus Ross, made beautiful music together for director David Fincher's "The Social Network." Now, they're getting ready to hit the perfect beat again for the director's version of Stieg Larsson's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

And reports reveal that the Nine Inch Nails frontman and Ross are two months into the composition process.

But Reznor and Ross are not the only ones from "The Social Network" to work with Fincher again. Rooney Mara, who was so memorable as the jilted girlfriend of Mark Zuckerberg, will play the juicy lead role of Lisbeth Salander, played by Noomi Rapace in the original Swedish version.

Completing the cast is Daniel Craig as Stellan Skarsgard. Robin Wright and Christopher Plummer will also join the ensemble. Sony Pictures will release "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" on December 21, 2011 just in time for the awards season.

Will we get "The Social Network" vibe part two?
