Nine Inch Nails’ ‘Year Zero’ Coming To TV Soon?
Nine Inch Nails 2007 album 'Year Zero' was a politically charged concept album that told the tale of a dystopian future through multiple viewpoints. It has been long-rumored to be in production to hit theaters or television, now it looks as if the rumors are finally true.
Nine Inch Nails Trent Reznor has been more focused on scoring movies after winning an Oscar and a Golden Globe for his efforts in last year's 'The Social Network'. Reznor has once again teamed with director David Fincher to provide the music for his upcoming adaptation of 'The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo'. Oddly enough; while he contributes music to a film, his music is being put on film in an entirely separate project.
The latest reports say that the NIN album 'Year Zero' will be adapted for a mini-series in a co-production between HBO and the BBC. Jim Uhls has been drafted to write the project for the small screen. Uhls previously adapted the Chuck Palahniuck novel 'Fight Club' for the big screen, ironically, David Fincher directed the movie.
Trent said recently that another Nine Inch Nails album was on the list of things to do and that it fell right after scoring 'Dragon Tattoo' and the film adaptation of 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter', which he would also have a cameo role in. He has since dropped out of 'ALVH', so a new NIN album may be closer than you think.
'Year Zero' was Reznor's vision of where the country was headed under the policies of then-President George W. Bush, his disdain for the former commander-in-chief comes through clear as a bell on tracks like 'Capitol G'.
