Abraham Lincoln Slated to Kill Vampires on Big Screen
Abraham Lincoln, sixteenth president of the United States, has been tapped by Tim Burton to kill vampires.
Burton plans to adapt a new book called “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” for the big screen. The novel, written by “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” author Seth Grahame-Smith, envisions Honest Abe as a “highly trained” vampire assassin.
According to Publishers Weekly, the story follows Lincoln after his other is killed by a supernatural predator, provoking in the future president a “bloody but curiously undocumented lifelong vendetta against vampires.”
Helping Burton produce “Lincoln” will be Timur Bekmambetov, director of Wanted.
