Trent Reznor Is Scoring - And Acting In - A Vampire Movie

The Nine Inch Nail opts to follow up his Oscar with something a little more offbeat.

Sources tell me that 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.

The movie is based on the literature-killing mash-up novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, which tells the secret history of Abraham Lincoln’s life-long struggle against vampires. It’s the sort of lazy and dumb idea that sells millions in today’s post-literate landscape. Timur Bekmambetov is directing the movie.

This seems like a weird choice for a dude who just took the hardest step towards EGOT, but it’s probably the kind of gig that Reznor likes, being an aging goth and all.
