Trent Reznor pulls out of ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ film project

But Nine Inch Nails man reaffirms commitment to 'Year Zero' TV mini-series

Trent Reznor has pulled out of a project to score and appear in new Tim Burton movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

The Nine Inch Nails man said he has changed his mind about working on the film, an adaptation of a mash-up novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, just days after confirming his involvement with the project in a blog post on

In a subsequent blog post on the Nine Inch Nails forum, he told fans that his change of heart was down to “various aspects of the project … 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,” Reznor said.

“Confused yet? Apparently I am. Bottom line, I wish them the best with the film and I’m sure it will still be great,” he stated.

Reznor added that he is still “fully engaged” with writing ‘Year Zero’, a HBO series based on the Nine Inch Nails album of the same name.

He won an Oscar earlier this month for the score for The Social Network.
