Trent Reznor is an authentic American badass.
Not only is he the acclaimed lead singer and mastermind behind the hugely influential industrial band Nine Inch Nails, he also just won an Academy Award for Best Original Score thanks to his widely acclaimed soundtrack for "The Social Network." But as awesome as Reznor is, he's about to face off against one foe even more badass: Abraham Lincoln.
Sorry, Trent, but our money is on Honest Abe.
Yes, get this: according to Collider, Reznor will not only be providing the score for the upcoming action flick "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," he's also set to co-star as an evil vampire. Isn't Hollywood great?
"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" is the much-anticipated big budget adaptation of the popular cross-genre-mash-up novel by "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" author Seth Grahame-Smith; the mostly unknown Benjamin Walker is set to star as Lincoln, who secretly becomes a vampire hunter after one of the undead monstrosities murders his mother.
And now it seems that Reznor is set to play that pivotal role in addition to providing the music. The move is a bit unusual, considering that Reznor's only previous film experience was a bit part in the 1987 Michael J. Fox film "Light of Day." But the way Reznor is going right now, we wouldn't put anything past him; in addition to "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," Reznor is also creating the score for the upcoming surefire international blockbuster "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."
Trent Reznor. Abraham Lincoln. Only in the movies, guys, only in the movies. We can't wait.
