Trent Reznor tries to keep everyone updated on some upcoming projects

03.07.2011

Oscar award winner Trent Reznor. Still kind of weird to say that. Very much deserved though. Reznor has been working hard on great music for awhile now and his Oscar win just felt like a natural progression.

As you might already know, Reznor was asked to do the score and take a small part for ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER. Both of these things are very cool. But according to the Nine Inch Nails singer, he's got a bunch of shit going on. This is what Reznor had to say in the NIN forums (via /Film ):

"What a surreal week, capping of an equally surreal few months! Thank you all for the support and kind words throughout. I need to once again point out the reason that score worked so well was David Fincher. We were simply executing his vision and it was an honor and an eduction working with him. Which brings me to: The Girl WIth the Dragon Tattoo. Atticus and I are hard at work scoring David’s next film, which will be opening this Christmas. We’ve been composing quite a bit of music for this and have just begun to see some of what’s been shot. Trust me when I say this film (and of course the music!) will not disappoint."

"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. 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. By having a few different outlets for my work I’m finding more inspiration within each one. No, Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next."

"And finally, I am friends with Timur Bekmambetov. 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). Fuck. We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore."

"So… do me a favor and act surprised, OK?"

Extra Tidbit: I was told that the pit at a NIN concert can be pretty brutal for a little lady, is this true? I'd really like to try and experience it.

If you head into the Pit bring someone with you in case you get knocked down. Most people are cool but there is always atleast on crazy dude who just go to the show to hit the Pit. Whatever you do though, DO NOT CROWD SURF.

It's not about the topic but... I'm not a big fan of The Millenium Trilogy (alias The Girl with/that trilogy). I haven't read the books, but the movies where rather overrated if you ask me and I didn't get the hype. But if Fincher manages once again to pull of an Oscar-worthy movie out of it, he may prove himself to be THE best director in the business.

NIN pit weak sauce

I have seen NIN 6 times in concert and five of those times in the pit and they are pretty tame. Some dudes bobbing their head, some drunk guys that can barely stand up. A girl of any size will be ok.

@ boognish

They actually announced who he would be playing on the sure a few days ago. But i won't spoil it for you.
Reznor and booth do have a passing resemblance though.

Older shows were probably insane but the "Wave Goodbye" tour (their last) was more of a visual/audio powerhouse than physical.

Looks like he's back to his workaholic ways from 2003 - 2009.

Extra Tidbit:

The pits aren't brutal. Definitely not at metal/punk levels, but there is plenty of jumping going on during the bouncier songs. My recommendation is to have a big person with you as a shield.

Cameo?

I'm guessing a vampire version of John Wilkes Booth at the end of the film?
