Trent Reznor Not Doing Abe Lincoln Vampire Movie After All
Andrew Youssef/OC Weekly
Yesterday, Trent Reznor posted on the Nine Inch Nails message boards that he is not, after all, going to be involved with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, as we previously reported.
The movie, based on the mash-up novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, tells of Lincoln's lifelong struggle against vampires, presented as part of the conflict behind the Civil War. It's being helmed by Timur Bekmambetov and Tim Burton, and news last week was that Reznor was going to again team up with Atticus Ross to score the movie and have a bit part in it as well, as he talked about in a Nine Inch Nails forum.
He explained that there was no juicy story to report: "When the news mysteriously leaked out about my involvement, I hadn't made up my mind completely because various aspects of the project were changing."
Read Reznor's whole statement after the jump.
Read his whole statement below:
Don't believe everything you read. As it turns out, I WON'T be working on (acting or scoring) ALVH after all. There's no juicy story here, it's just that when the news mysteriously leaked out about my involvement, I hadn't made up my mind completely because various aspects of the project were changing. I felt the need to say something earlier this week because my inbox was filling up with speculation, and at that moment, I thought I would be doing it. Confused yet? Apparently, I am.
Bottom line, I wish them the best with the film, and I'm sure it will still be great.
Also, in all the excitement of the last note, I forgot to mention we're still fully engaged with the Year Zero mini-series, writing away.
