Published Aug 15, 2007Blabbermouth.net is reporting that Nine Inch Nails are in talks to develop their most recent album Year Zero into a television series.
Front-man Trent Reznor discussed the project with a UK newspaper, saying "We've got a producer on board and have met with writers. We're about to pitch it to the network, so we're a couple of weeks away from meeting all of the main people, and we'll see what happens."
The album presents a dystopian future, telling what events could unfold in 15 years. As with any of Reznor's work, it's not pretty; his imagination paints a picture of a totalitarian state ruled by right-wing religious nuts. So, wouldn't that just be like watching CNN?
Reznor has also admitted before that he would be interested in turning Year Zero into a feature film as well. Well, which is it Trent?
