The Search Continues for the Perfect ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’
For those not hip to the concept here, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was originally a novel with a revisionist take on Lincoln's presidency, and by "revisionist" I mean the author asked, "Hey! Wouldn't it be cool if Lincoln killed vampires?" Author and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has a pedigree in this type of mash-up, also having penned the sleeper best-seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. The man has a style, that's for sure.
It goes without saying that AL:VH will be brought shot and shown in magnificent 3-D, which we can hope will be a more immersive experience than Burton's last outing, Alice in Wonderland.
The casting decision is, of course, a big one, but let's not give too much weight to the actor playing Lincoln. When you've got Abe Lincoln throwing axes at Dracula, you've clearly waved goodbye to realism a long time ago.
