Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Movie

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter MovieAbraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is an upcoming fantasy action movie based on the novel of the same name written by Seth Grahame-Smith. Director Timur Bekmambetov will helm the project with Tim Burton on board as a producer. The story sheds light on Abraham Lincoln's secret life as a vampire slayer. The cast hasn't been announced yet, but Actor Eric Bana is rumored for the lead role.

A few words from Director Timur Bekmambetov about the movie Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter:

"I'm prepping to direct myself. It is not a comedy at all – it is a very entertaining, epic history lesson for millions and millions of teenagers. If you remember Nightwatch, it is maybe in the vein of that kind of movie.
We are keeping the traditional look of Lincoln – the big hat and the beard. He has to be historically correct, but with a few special weapons. There is only one book, but there will be many opportunities to develop and explore this world if we get to do sequels... I hope we will start this winter. We are shooting in America."
Director Timur Bekmambetov

Here's the trailer of the original book:

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter
"President Lincoln's mother is killed by a supernatural creature, which fuels his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers."

A far-fetched story, but since Timur Bekmambetov is directing the film, I bet Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is going to be a damn awesome action-packed movie!
