Oscar-winning Nine Inch Nails star Trent Reznor is in talks to play a villain in the movie adaptation of quirky bestseller Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
The rocker, whose The Social Network score won him his first Academy Award on Sunday (27Feb11), will portray the bloodsucker who claims the life of Lincoln's mother at the beginning of the movie, according to Badass Digest.
Reznor will reportedly compose the music for the dark drama too.
He has also signed up to score The Social Network director David Fincher's American adaptation of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
