Published Mar 11, 2011Earlier this month, we pointed to rumours that Trent Reznor might follow his recent Oscar win with a role in and score for a vampire flick called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Since then, Reznor has gone on to confirm that the rumours were legitimate but he ultimately turned down the project.
In a recent statement on the Nine Inch Nails forum, Reznor clarified what was going on:
Don't believe everything you read. As it turns out, I WON'T be working on (acting or scoring) ALVH after all. There's no juicy story here, it's just that when the news mysteriously leaked out about my involvement I hadn't made up my mind completely, because various aspects of the project were changing. I felt the need to say something earlier this week because my inbox was filling up with speculation, and at that moment I thought I would be doing it. Confused yet? Apparently I am. Bottom line, I wish them the best with the film and I'm sure it will still be great.
Earlier this week Reznor seemingly revealed that he would be working on Nine Inch Nails next, but in this same recent statement, he revealed that his long-awaited Year Zero HBO TV show is also on its way, saying, "Also, in all the excitement of the last note I forgot to mention we're still fully engaged with the Year Zero mini-series, writing away."
