[TV] Trent Reznor Tells Fans “Year Zero” Is In A Holding State

It has been nearly 5 years since Trent Reznor announced that his Nine Inch Nails concept album “Year Zero” would be adapted into a television series. It made the rounds and found a home at HBO back in 2010. Still, with 2013 on the horizon, Reznor and co. have yet to even get a pilot presentation off the ground. Who does he blame? Himself.

During a Reddit conversation to hype the sale of the terrible How to Destroy Angles EP “An omen_”, a new album he recorded with Yoko…whoops, I mean, his wife Mariqueen Maandig, Reznor tells his fans that there’s nothing going on with the “Year Zero” project at the moment.

This is currently in a holding state,” says Reznor. “We didn’t find the right match with a writer, and really have been avoiding doing what we should have done from the beginning: write it ourselves. We = Rob and myself.

This project means a lot to me and will see the light of day in one form or another,” says the optimistic NIN frontman.

“Year Zero” began (as so many things do in the music of Nine Inch Nails) from a place of wrenching emotion and sonic adventure. The “Year Zero” album criticizes the U.S. government — specifically the Bush years — and presents a dystopian vision of the year 2022.

    Well, there are those of us out there who think HTDA is the fucking shit and eagerly await the full length release. I guess if I don’t want all of the headlines in my news to be editorials then I should have changed sites some time ago.

    mr disgusting you wonder why people think you are a hack, it’s because you make irrelevant references like saying Mariqueen Maandig is like yoko ono, when they are nothing a like, i suggest you quit the site and let people who actually have a passion for movies, films and video games take over
