Trent Reznor to shift focus back to NIN

Trent Reznor may have claimed retirement from Nine Inch Nails, but it sounds like the recent Oscar winner is already preparing to revitalize the act that made him famous. Reznor posted a lengthy blog on the NIN forum this week discussing his future plans and clarifying a few misunderstandings.
“The three columns of things I’m currently funneling music into – HTDA, NIN and film work – I believe will start to make more sense to you (and me) as everything unfolds,” he wrote, referring to his new band How To Destroy Angels. “By having a few different outlets for my work I’m finding more inspiration within each one. No, Nine Inch Nails is not dead and I plan to focus on that next.”
He added, “Perhaps I misspoke on the red carpet or wherever it was I said the new How To Destroy Angels record is finished – it is not. We’ve been working since last summer on it and are due to mix it this summer for a fall release. We’ve spent a lot of time experimenting and finding our own sound and identity this time around and we’re very happy with the results.”

Renzor is also confirmed to be scoring David Fincher’s upcoming film-adaptation of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, which will be out late this year. “Atticus [Ross] and I are hard at work scoring David’s next film, which will be opening this Christmas,” Reznor wrote. “We’ve been composing quite a bit of music for this and have just begun to see some of what’s been shot. Trust me when I say this film (and of course the music!) will not disappoint.”
As for that other project Reznor is said to be doing? It’s apparently true. He will be scoring and appearing in the film Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter — which was supposed to be a surprise. “The idea was a cameo-esque role that would be kept under wraps and be a surprise around opening night,” Reznor wrote. “I was considering this when I awoke a few days ago to the news I am now STARRING in ALVH (which is obviously not true). Fuck. We both apparently forgot the internet existed AND THERE ARE NO SURPRISES anymore.”
