More updates from Camp Reznor: It turns out that the Oscar winning musician (again, it’ll never get old) will not be scoring or making a cameo in the forthcoming film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Though he seemed to confirm the news in a separate update earlier this week, Reznor has since taken to the band’s forum to officially put a kibosh on the possibility.
“Don’t believe everything you read. As it turns out, I WON’T be working on (acting or scoring) ALVH after all,” Reznor wrote. “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.”
But where there is bad news there is also good: Reznor closed his note by adding that he’s “still fully engaged” with his Year Zero mini-series. As previously reported, the long rumored HBO miniseries is based on Nine Inch Nails’ 2007 concept album Year Zero. In a September 2010 interview with Hero Complex, Reznor revealed that the project was being produced by Lawrence Bender (Pulp Fiction, An Inconvenient Truth) and Kevin Kelly Brown (Roswell) and written by Daniel Knauf (CarnivÃ le).
