Trent Reznor to score Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Update (08/03): Reznor offered some updates on the NIN forums, pointing out that his next gig is actually scoring Fincher’s The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and he is only in talks to score and cameo in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Previously…

Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails picked up an Oscar earlier this week for scoring The Social Network. According to Badass Digest, Reznor has booked his second major movie score: the increasingly anachronistic-sounding Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

It is unknown if his Social Network collaborator Atticus Ross will be joining him in the recording booth.

Badass Digest also believe Reznor will appear in the film as the vampire who kills Lincoln’s mom, an act that will inspire him to become a vicious, unrepentant vamp-killer, as is well documented throughout history.

Benjamin Walker will star as Abe, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as his wife Mary Todd, Dominic Cooper as Abe’s mentor and Anthony Mackie as Abe’s BFF. Timur Bekmambetov will direct.

Discuss: This project looks more appealing every day … but does the involvement of Bekmambetov make anyone else nervous? Just me? Alright then.
