Well news today from Badass Digest has Reznor (right) at it once again, this time for a highly anticipated genre flick! In case you completely skipped over the title of this article, that flick is Timur Bekmatebov's ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER! But get this... Not only with Reznor be scoring this puppy, he'll also be starring in the film as 'the vampire who kills Lincolnís mom.' Aww sh*t, I'm pretty sure Honest Abe is going to be pissed about that!
When Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the "milk sickness." Only later did he learn that his mother's deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect a debt owed by Lincoln's father. When Abe learned the truth, he vowed revenge and kept one passion hidden throughout his life: the brutal elimination of all vampires. His valiant, bloody fight against the undead was all but lost to history, until Grahame-Smith stumbled upon the secret journal of Abraham Lincoln.
Using the journal as his guide, Seth reconstructs Lincoln's life story and uncovers the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation. You don't know Abe. Honest.
I don't know about the rest of you but I loved the score for THE SOCIAL NETWORK so I'm stoked at this news! I'm sure I'm not the only one either. ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER sports a solid cast that includes Reznor, Ben Walker, Dominic Cooper, Jimmi Simpson, Anthony Mackie and Mary Elisabeth Winstead (below). The film is currently filming in Louisiana with a June 22, 2012 release date lined up.
