He’s not all about scoring movies (and winning a GOTdamn OSCAR!) these days–Trent Reznor plans to start working on more Nine Inch Nails material soon.
In a message on NIN’s Official Site, El Rez wrote about working on more music, and his not-so-secret role in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.”
“The three columns of things I’m currently funneling music into – HTDA, NIN and film work – I believe will start to make more sense to you (and me) as everything unfolds. By having a few different outlets for my work I’m finding more inspiration within each one. No, Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next.
And finally, 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 Fincher films. 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?”
I’m sure DivaJulia is on the verge of tears hearing this news! (Vagina tears coming from me.) Frankly, I don’t care about that other band. Just get back to NIN soon please, need more of this “crawling on the floor” business.
