Trent Reznor Is Going to Bite Abraham Lincoln’s Mother In the Throat

What do you do after you win an Academy Award? If you’re Three 6 Mafia, it’s go on to make great music that’s under-appreciated. If you’re Trent Reznor, it’s apparently killing the mother of an iconic historical figure.

According to those ever-elusive sources whispering sensually in the ear of Team Bad Ass Digest, Reznor will be scoring Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (which is fantastic news), and he’ll also be playing a small but important role as a vampire that sets Lincoln’s killing ways in motion when he kills the one person in his life that means anything to him.

The project is really starting to heat up, which is absolutely ridiculous considering the premise. Two years ago, this thing would have been relegated to some random genre director who wanted to be slightly funny and over-the-top. Now, it’s a serious studio project with a decently well-known action director (who’s tackled vampires before) and Indie Spirit Award nominees and Oscar winners hopping into the cast. It’s sort of incredible, and the prospect of Reznor getting a chance to go dark and wear an old timey top hat is equally exciting.

We’ll get to hear his work sooner than that, of course, because he’s set to re-team with David Fincher to score The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo which hits theaters in December.
