Trent Reznor Abraham Lincoln - Newly minted Oscar-winner (and Severus Snape look-alike) Trent Reznor is already set to continue his career as a high-profile motion picture composer by reuniting with director David Fincher for his English-language adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
Now the Nine Inch Nails creator is circling another project, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, with the intention of not only scoring the film, but starring in the historical horror adventure as well.
The Goth musician tried his hand at a feature-length film soundtrack last year by collaborating with Atticus Ross on the ominous electronica score for The Social Network – ultimately netting an Academy Award in the process.
Reznor may not only be working on the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter adaptation behind the scenes, but in front of the camera as well. He reportedly is in line to play the vampire who kills Lincoln’s mother and inspires the future 16th U.S. president to dedicate his life to the eradication of all bloody-hungry creatures of the night. It’s a small role, of course, and Reznor certainly has the pallid complexion to play a vampire onscreen, so… it’s all good by me.
