Not long ago, Trent Reznor often required “Nine Inch Nails” to either precede or follow his name, but seeing as he’s now both an Oscar and Golden Globe-winning composer, well, you can just refer to him as Trent. With the success he’s had co-writing the score with Atticus Ross to David Fincher’s The Social Network, and following that up with the score to Fincher’s next film, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Reznor can virtually do anything now.
On top of scoring, Reznor says he also planning new music from Nine Inch Nails album. In a post titled “Gold statues, silver bullets, tattoos and the continued destruction of angels” on the band’s forum, Reznor updated fans, saying, “No, Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next.”
But that’s not all. He also corrected a statement he gave that confirmed a new album by his other project How To Destroy Angels. “Perhaps I misspoke on the red carpet or wherever it was I said the new How To Destroy Angels record is finished – it is not,” he wrote. “We’ve been working since last summer on it and are due to mix it this summer for a fall release. We’ve spent a lot of time experimenting and finding our own sound and identity this time around and we’re very happy with the results. 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.”
Finally, Trent confirmed rumours about his starring role in the upcoming vampire flick, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
“I am friends with [director] Timur Bekmambetov,” he wrote. “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). F**k. We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore. So… do me a favor and act surprised, OK?”Tweet
