Trent Reznor in Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Trent Reznor talked to board members on the Nine Inch Nails forum about his involvement in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. “I am friends with Timur Bekmambetov. He’s an interesting and very talented director that caught my attention with his film Night Watch (check it out if you haven’t). He asked me if I was interested in scoring his new film he’s doing with Tim Burton entitled “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”. I was familiar with the book, read the script and it felt like an interesting challenge as a composer – very different from the Fincher films. While discussing the film with Timur he started gently pressing me to play a small role in the film. The idea was a cameo-esque role that would be kept under wraps and be a surprise around opening night. I was considering this when I awoke a few days ago to the news I am now STARRING in ALVH (which is obviously not true). Fuck. We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore. So…do me a favor and act surprised, OK?” Reznor will play a vampire in the film that kills Abraham Lincoln’s mother.
