Trent Reznor And ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ Are Not In This Together

Thursday, March 10 by

You know what sounded cool? Trent Reznor writing the music, and acting in, the upcoming Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. You know what sucks? That’s not actually happening.

Reznor told fans on the Nine Inch Nails website that when the story broke, he was still deciding whether or not to take the job. He decided not to do it and “hurt” all our feelings instead. The Social Network composer will be scoring The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, but that’s not gonna have nearly as many Lincoln vampire fight sequences. I assume.

Maybe winning an Oscar went to his head? Specifically, the part of the brain that doesn’t like fun and good times? Of course, he might use the time saved to work on a new NIN album. If that’s case, then the gods of rock need him, and I understand. *Bows Head, Holds Up Cell Phone Camera* (Cinema Blend)

    So far he’s got the score for ‘The Social Network’ and soundtrack credits for ‘Lost Highway’ and ‘Natural Born Killers’. AL:VH is far from a sure thing, and I’d rather he err on the side of caution and forego another score so that he could work with Fincher one more time and get a NIN album that he has promised. Plus, I didn’t need to see Trent do a cameo in this film. That sounded a little cheap to me, though I hold Trent in higher regard than most everyone on the planet, save for his parents.
