Rumors are circulating that Reznor will appear in a film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter . Reznor’s role will be a vampire who kills Lincoln’s mother. In addition, Reznor will write the film score.
The movie is based on the alternative history novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, which tells the secret history of Abraham Lincoln’s life-long struggle against vampires. Timur Bekmambetov is directing the movie.
If you haven’t read the book, here’s an interesting review of the book by Time. I haven’t read the book, so I can only speculate if this alternative history “biopic” will work as a film.
What do you think? Is this a good next step for Reznor?
