Still on the "I can't believe Trent Reznor has an Oscar" tip: Reznor has already said he's keeping busy with his kid; working on a full How to Destroy Angels release (his band with his wife, Mariqueen); and on another David Fincher project, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo remake. The latest, according to Badass Digest, is that he's reteaming with Atticus Ross to creat the score for Timur Bekmambetov and Tim Burton's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  

The movie is based on the mash-up novel by Seth Grahame-Smith and tells of Lincoln's lifelong struggle against vampires presented as part of the conflict behind the Civil War.

"It's the sort of lazy and dumb idea that sells millions in today's post-literate landscape," says Badass Digest.  

The other tidbit that Reznor fans will love: He appears in the film as the vampire who kills Lincoln's mom.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opens in theaters June 22.
