Reznor makes movies?

I grew up on the muffled sounds of Nine Inch Nails industrial clang blasting through the walls of my depressed brotherís room, and soon enough I learned to love them myself. Now I count them as one of my favourite bands, which is why I get all riled up when I hear that NIN mastermind Trent Reznor is considering turning his latest concept album YEAR ZERO into a film. Reznor tells the Australia Herald-Sun:

"But some interesting things have come up in terms of turning this into another format of entertainment, like a television show or a movie. I've had some meetings with A-list people I'm interested in possibly working with.Ē

A-list people, eh? Heís already worked with a number of talented directors on music videos, including Mark Romanek (ONE HOUR PHOTO) and David Fincher, who I could easily see working with Reznor on a visual adaptation of his work. YEAR ZERO is essentially the story of a future-world run by a dictator state where the end of the world is nigh, with many interpreting it as a shot at the Bush administration and the way things are headed. With his videos, footage-based live shows, and vivd lyrics, Reznor has always been a visual musician, so a jump to film seems natural to me. Go for it, dude.

Extra Tidbit: Reznor has described YEAR ZERO as a soundtrack for a film that doesn't exist. Yet.

FUCK YEAH

I'm a huge NIN fan and "Year Zero" is an amazing album. I'd say it's one of the best if not best work of his career. In following the online Alternate Reality Game that goes along with YZ (check out [link] the album's setting seems very vivid and a great place for a film to be set. It has been reported that "Part 2" of YZ is going to be happening in 2008.....oooooooooh the anticipation.
