Oscar-winning composer Trent Reznor took to the Nine Inch Nails forum yesterday to address fan questions about his two upcoming film projects – his scoring work on David Fincher’s “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” and his scoring and onscreen role in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”.
In regards to ‘Girl’, Reznor says “Atticus and I are hard at work scoring David’s next film, which will be opening this Christmas. We’ve been composing quite a bit of music for this and have just begun to see some of what’s been shot. Trust me when I say this film (and of course the music!) will not disappoint.”
As for ‘Lincoln’, it turns out the news that leaked last week about his on screen involvement in the film was meant to be kept top secret. Reznor says “I was familiar with the book, read the script and it felt like an interesting challenge as a composer – very different from the Fincher films. While discussing the film with Timur [Bekmambetov, director] he started gently pressing me to play a small role in the film. The idea was a cameo-esque role that would be kept under wraps and be a surprise around opening night. I was considering this when I awoke a few days ago to the news I am now STARRING in ALVH (which is obviously not true). F—. We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore. So… do me a favor and act surprised, OK?”
