Trent Reznor's stock in Hollywood rose with his Oscar win for "The Social Network," assuring that more offers would come his way. Now he just has to commit to one.

Last week word leaked that Reznor would not only be scoring "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," he'd have a small role as well, as the monster that kills the hero's mommy. This was followed up by a blog post from Reznor expressing his disappointment that his role had made it to cyberspace, but confirming that it was true.

Well here we are just a few days later, and it seems he's had a change of heart, posting on his message board:

Don’t believe everything you read. As it turns out, I WON’T be working on (acting or scoring) ALVH after all. There’s no juicy story here, it’s just that when the news mysteriously leaked out about my involvement I hadn’t made up my mind completely, because various aspects of the project were changing. I felt the need to say something earlier this week because my inbox was filling up with speculation, and at that moment I thought I would be doing it. Confused yet? Apparently I am.  Bottom line, I wish them the best with the film and I’m sure it will still be great.  Also, in all the excitement of the last note I forgot to mention we’re still fully engaged with the Year Zero mini-series, writing away.

Oh well...
