Trent Reznor scoring ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

Apparently Oscar gold has Trent Reznor out for blood.

Horrible vampire joke aside, Reznor has in fact decided to take his composing, and acting, skills to an upcoming vampire film.

Badass Digest is reporting that Reznor will be scoring the upcoming Timur Bekmambetov film, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, and will also be appearing in the film as a vampire that the iconic former President has to take out. The film will be based off of a novel penned by Seth Grahame-Smith, and follows Lincoln’s fight against vampires throughout his life.

VAMPIRE HUNTER will star Jimmi Simpson, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Lincoln himself, Ben Walker, and is one of a cavalcade of revisionist style projects currently being put through the pipeline.Personally, while I haven’t read the novel, the idea of Bekmambetov doing a film like this with a Reznor score makes this a really interesting little project. 

The film will hit on June 22, 2012. What do you think about this news?

    I wonder if Ross will join him this too or if he will score solo?

      At this point, it looks as though it’s only Reznor. But I’d be shocked if Ross didn’t join him. They seem connected at the hip, so it wouldn’t shock me at all if he was also scoring with Reznor.

    I have been reading little snipetes here and there when I use my roomates bathroom. Yeah Allison, you know who I’m talking about. And this story is dark and brooding. Not to mention how out right bad ass Lincoln is in it. Getting Reznor is amazing and I can’t wait to see this.
