Fresh Off Oscar Win, Trent Reznor In Talks For Role In Vampire Flick

Hollywood is treating Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor pretty well these days. The industrial God picked up an Oscar last weekend for his score of The Social Network. Now he’s in talks with 20th Century Fox to not only score the upcoming adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith‘s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, he may act in the film. Entertainment Weekly confirmed that Reznor is in negotiations to play Jack Barts–the vampire who kills Lincoln’s mom.

Twilight pretty much killed the whole vampire thing for us, but with Reznor on board, we admit, we’d reconsider shelling out for a matinee.

Update – 03/11/11: Via his website, Reznor today informs that he will now not be working on this project at all.
