We now have a clear idea of exactly whom Abraham Lincoln will be hunting in Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Rufus Sewell has signed on to play Adam, the leader of the Southern vampires.

Britain's version of Jeff Goldblum is best known for his starring role in the cult favorite Dark City, but you may have also not seen him in the recently ignored film The Tourist. In Lincoln, he joins the previously cast Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper, Alan Tudyk, and Jimmi Simpson. The more I read about this film, the more excited I get. Sounds like a really awesome revisionist history story. I'd go out and read the book, but it's a book. Yick! (Variety)
