/abraham-lincoln-vampire-hunter-adds-trent-reznor/Last Week, the news broke that recent Oscar-winning film composer and gracefully aging Goth-rocker Trent Reznor had signed up to not only score Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, but to also star as the vampire who attacks and kills Abraham Lincoln's mother.
Today, Trent Reznor has gone on record to chat about this interesting new project he has attached himself to, and to clarify some details.
"I am friends with Timur Bekmambetov. He's an interesting and very talented director that caught my attention with his film Night Watch (check it out if you haven't). He asked me if I was interested in scoring his new film he's doing with Tim Burton entitled "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter". I was familiar with the book, read the script and it felt like an interesting challenge as a composer - very different from the David Fincher. While discussing the film with Timur, 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). Fuck. We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore. So... do me a favor and act surprised, OK?"
