UPDATE: Just kidding, you guys. Unfortunately, Trent Reznor will not be scoring or appearing in the 20th Century Fox's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Apparently we jumped the gun a bit before Reznor made up his mind. Now he has and has publicly stated that he will not be taking part in the picture. It seems as though it's nothing personal, purely a business decision. Oh well, it would've been cool to have Reznor's darkness permeate through the somber, foggy hills as Lincoln brandishes his ax and chops away at undead corpses and wow, that got a little too fan fiction-y. Sorry dudes.
EARLIER: Sure, why not. Let’s have Trent Reznor, the recently Oscar-crowned composer of The Social Network and Nine Inch Nails frontman, not only score Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but also act in it as well. Prior to hearing his Social Network score last year I would never have thought this possible. After hearing it, I could see him scoring it. And even after he won the Oscar I figured he’d be in demand for musical contributions to films so I could see him taking this high profile gig.
But I never thought we’d see him act. Guess he’s going for the EGOT. We don’t know what part he’ll play but does it even matter? No, of course not. What does matter is that Reznor is back to being cool so you can totally go ahead with that NIN tattoo you drew on your arm in ‘96.
