Timur Bekmambetov's fantasy horror/thriller scripted by Simon Kingberg and Seth Grahame-Smith, based on the novel by Smith, opens June 22nd, 2012.
In truth, I've never read this, but with such an oddly intriguing title, and Bekmambetov (Wanted), I'm certainly on board. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter tells of Lincoln's secret battle with the undead. It portrays the 16th president as a highly trained assassin of vampires.
Also in the cast of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter are Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Alan Tudyk, Robin McLeavy and Jimmi Simpson.
Pic is produced by Tim Burton and Bekmambetov, collaborators on Shane Acker's 9 animated film.
