Fresh off his Oscar win for co-producing the musical score for “The Social Network”, former Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor looks to have lined up another project – Fox’s tentpole “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”.
According to Bad Ass Digest, Reznor is set to not just score the film but will also star in the role of the vampire responsible for the death of Lincoln’s mother.
Benjamin Walker stars as Lincoln, the man destined to become the 16th President of the United States who must also quell an uprising of the children of the night. Reznor joins a cast that includes Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Jimmi Simpson.
Reznor and his ‘Social’ music collaborator Atticus Ross are shortly to re-team with Fincher on the helmer’s adaptation of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo”. It sounds like Ross will not be involved with the ‘Lincoln’ score though.
