Only a few days ago it was announced that Trent Reznor was negotiating to cameo in and score Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. That, however, is no longer the case. Reznor posted an update on the official NIN message boards:
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.
Reznor also offered a quick update on his HBO series Year Zero, telling fans he’s “still fully engaged with the Year Zero mini-series, writing away.”
