Trent Reznor used to be about the music, but now he’s gone all Hollywood. The Academy Award-winning composer and Nine Inch Nails braintrust has found a writer to adapt his 2007 concept album Year Zero into a miniseries on both BBC and HBO. That writer is Jim Uhls, another familiar face in the David Fincher universe, having penned the Fight Club script, which closely parallels some of the sentiments conveyed in Year Zero.

Year Zero takes place in a dystopian 2022, in which the world is just a rotten, rotten place due to the policies enacted by contemporary¬†government¬†(2007 or so). Rather than focus myopically on the government, the mini-series will exist in a sci-fi context, though exactly what that construct will be is not clear. Listening to the album could either provide some insight or serve as a red herring, as it’s not known how faithful the adaptation will be to Reznor’s industrial work.

Further details aren’t available, but Reznor and Uhls’ involvement are both very good things. If there’s any way to get Fincher on this in any capacity, it wouldn’t be hyperbolic to declare this project the greatest thing in the history of civilization. Yes, better than the Magna Carta. (THR)

I did saber toothed tiger fangs ’cause they’re funnier. Leave the room if you got a problem.

Sam Worthington, who must have made a pact with the Devil to achieve his current "it" status, has signed on to play the "it" vampire in Dracula Year Zero. The film, which is being directed by Alex Proyas (he worked with Nic Cage so we should be good), explores the origin of Dracula in a tragic love story chalk full of love and war shrouded in homoerotic nuance no doubt.

Worthington already played a cyborg and an alien, he’ll soon be seen as Greek hero in Clash of the Titans, and now he can add a cape and widow’s peak latex cap to his costume drawer.  I’d say he’s about as versatile an actor as Gary Oldman.

As Vince from FilmDrunk would say, "That tastes like a burn."
