Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor is determined to tell is tale of the impending apocalypse as development continues to truck on with Year Zero, his adaptation of his concept album from 2007.
THR writes that progress is being made as Fight Club writer Jim Uhls has been tapped to write Reznor’s HBO/BBC Worldwide Productions miniseries.
The “Year Zero” album criticizes the U.S. government — specifically the Bush years — and presents a dystopian vision of the year 2022. Reznor has already adapted the album into an alternate reality game.
Reznor most recently picked up the Academy Award for penning the original score, with Atticus Ross, to Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network. He also composed the score for Sorkin’s upcoming adaptation of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.
