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