Academy Award Winner Trent Reznor to Score and Put the Bite on in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

We still remember the first time we heard “Head Like a Hole”. Friggin’ blew our minds, man. All of a sudden Trent Reznor and Nine Inch Nails exploded onto the scene, and the music and film industries have benefited ever since.

Now an Oscar winner, Reznor is apparently setting his sights on one very pretty neck. According to Badass Digest Reznor will be providing the score to the film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter – and he’ll be appearing as the vampire who kills Lincoln’s mom as well.

If this does go down, he’ll be appearing opposite Ben Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Jimmi Simpson, and Mary Elisabeth Winstead.

Timur Bekmambetov will direct from Seth Grahame-Smith’s adaptation of his own novel. Tim Burton and Jim Lemley will produce. Fox is aiming at a June 22nd, 2012, release.

Book Synopsis
When Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the “milk sickness.” Only later did he learn that his mother’s deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect a debt owed by Lincoln’s father. When Abe learned the truth, he vowed revenge and kept one passion hidden throughout his life: the brutal elimination of all vampires. His valiant, bloody fight against the undead was all but lost to history, until Grahame-Smith stumbled upon the secret journal of Abraham Lincoln.

Using the journal as his guide, Seth reconstructs Lincoln’s life story and uncovers the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation. You don’t know Abe. Honest.

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    I have the first few NIN albums from back when he was an industrial act. It’s nice he’s having some success in a related field.

    How long before Straftanz are scoring a film?

  • nonserviam03

    I’ve always kind of hated Trent Reznor, but that score for The Social Network was really really good.

    • The Woman In Black

      Overall it was great, but there were a few moments here and there when it was really discordant and I thought my head might explode. The desired effect I’m sure, but man, was it annoying.

      • GJW

        Maybe there was some stupid ass rubber tire rolling around making peoples head explode, and you almost became a victim, but somehow you luckily at the last second miraculously escaped the grip of the highly retarded vengeful tire that they’re making a really stupid movie about. Sigh. Just sayin’.
