Trent Reznor To Star As Vampire In 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'
0
Fresh off his win at the Academy - which awarded him an Oscar for his score to "The Social Network" - Trent Reznor will now get to work on at least two additional scores. Apparently encouraged by his Oscar victory, Reznor will take his foray into film one step further - he will not only write the music for, but also star in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." The film is not based on a true story. At least, not entirely. Online publication Badass Digest reports that Reznor will appear as a vampire in the movie, which is being produced by Tim Burton. Neither of those statements are all that surprising. The movie is an exploration of Abraham Lincoln's secret lifelong battle with vampires. OK - that statement kinda is. Reznor is also working on the score for "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." Guess when you find happiness, marry a beautiful lady and disband an institutional band like Nine Inch Nails, your life starts to become more and more like the movies. Or, at least, begins to sound like it. Thanks for the report to Spinner.com.

    1. You can't disband a band with one member. 2. NIN is still intact, just not touring. Just pointing that out.

    Thank. You. Glad you were the first post. Now with that out of the way, it's kind of nice that he won the academy award so early because not only does he have a ton of people after him and Ross wanting them to score their films, but he has easy access into movies now. I mean, this movie sounds like shit, but it'll be fun for him. I won't watch it though.

    This movie sounds horrible. But I am sure Edward Scissor Hands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and all of Burton's other movies did too. I think it is awesome that Reznor is dabbling in acting now obviously making a lot of contacts in the film industry. I would not be suprised if he started directing movies in the near future. I hope maybe this can lead to him getting the Year Zero series in production, if he did not already can that idea.

    The book was very good, and Trent as a vampire in it makes me want to see it more. but I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, movies based off of anything never make everyone happy but I guess I will have to wait and see.

    Question. He's scoring The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo? How do you score a movie that's already out?

    if this is legit, i can honestly see that in the future at some point, some kid with half a brain is going to be asked who Abraham Lincoln was, and this kid with all sincerity is going to reply that he was a vampire hunter.

    Not surprised that Trent Reznor is playing a vampire. And it does sound like a terrible movie.

    YES!! That's an amazing thought!

    Yeah, but that was confirmed a while ago, and isn't the point of this article. I was talking about the vampire thing.

    This is based on the book, from the same guy that wrote(ish) Pride & Predjudice & Zombies. Seth Graham something? Anyway, book was good. Looking forward to hearing trent's version of music from the 1800's.

    Another recycled idea from the most overrated director in hollywood. I'd be more excited if he did a traditional drama...instead of just another "quirky" movie. Is this guy incapable of coming up with other ideas?

    i think all of these incursions into movies are like an undercover agent gathering intel. Trent is in the movie buisness so he can gather all information on the movie process so that make one badass Year Zero mini series on TV.

    The only way to kill Trent Reznor in the movie is with a Nine Inch Nail stake through the heart

    I watched The Social Network after hearing great things about Reznor's soundtrack. I was very dissapointed by the music but the movie was better than I thought; Tedious legal battles and computer nerds arguing at 12,000 words per minute are not my idea of a good film, but it was surprisingly watchable. That vampire film sounds like it's gonna be terrible though.

    The book was excellent. I read it all in one long go, I just couldn't put it down!
