You guys are going to go see this, right?
He’s got my vote.
Apart from the space aliens and demons, these are all pretty much historically accurate.
They’re the only ones who can almost make some sense of the story.
When he wasn’t killing vampires, Honest Abe was orating. Which might not be as exciting to you youngsters, but was no less important.
Britain’s version of Jeff Goldblum is being fit for a set of fangs.
To the chagrin of President Lincoln, Alan Tudyk has aligned himself with the South.
‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ will try to stake Pixar’s ‘The Brave’ at the box office. *Gasps*
“You can’t play the wife, but maybe you’d be interested in playing … the mom?”
You know what sounded cool? Trent Reznor writing the music, and acting in, the upcoming ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’. You know what sucks? That’s not actually happening.
Trent Reznor might return to acting, and Charlie Sheen might continue acting… crazy.
One of the weird McPoyle brothers from ‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia’ is about to play a yet to be determined/released role in ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’.
False alarm, folks. You can go back to not knowing who the hell Robin McLeavy is. Mary Elizabeth Winstead will play Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’s tenderoni after all.
You’d think a name like that would put his headshot and resume in the “???” pile, but it turns out McNairy (‘Art School Confidential’) is a hot name right now.
Secret vampire hunter Abraham Lincoln has taken a wife. Though it’s likely they will sleep in separate beds.
We know that Joaquin Phoenix loves beards, so it makes sense that he’s attracted to a project about a man with a legendary beard: motherfreakin’ Abraham Lincoln.
The story might be about Abraham Lincoln fighting vampires, but it was lesser known actor Walker who fought a bunch of high-profile, blood-sucking (okay, maybe not blood-sucking) celebrities to snag the role.
It would seem that Josh Lucas has an affinity for period pieces. Or period pieces have an affinity for Lucas.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter producers have been working since November to cast the titular character. While the field may be clearer, it’s still by no means clear.
Looks like Eric Bana won’t have a chance to play with his Christmas toys. He’s just signed on to a new crime thriller and has his eye on the presidency for another role.

Based on Seth Grahame-Smith's novel of the same name, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has been acquired by Fox. The film will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov, with Tim Burton on board as a producer. Of course these lily-livered Hollywood elitists can not build up the image of a man as loathsome as our 16th chief executive without first tearing down the reputation of Dixie.
"The 'new' history finds Lincoln discovering that Southern plantation owners aren't using slaves for labor, but blood as they are actually evil creatures of the night. This causes Lincoln to become an Abolitionist and the true motives for the Civil War are born."
The brave sons and daughters of the Confederacy will not sit idly by as the South's good name is dragged through the mud. Any historian worth a damn knows that cases of vampirism in the Antebellum South were minimal, and confined to Papists in Louisiana. I intend to write a letter to all parties involved with this drivel right after I finish cooking meth, watching Nascar, and sleeping with my cousin. (HitFix)
Looks like someone is finally willing to make a movie about Abraham Lincoln. The unspell-checkable Timur Bekmambetov has signed on to direct Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Here he explains his plans with a dry, Tontoesque delivery:
"I'm prepping to direct myself. It is not a comedy at all – it is a very entertaining, epic history lesson for millions and millions of teenagers. If you remember 'Nightwatch,' it is maybe in the vein of that kind of movie. 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."
I am excite to see this movie. No word yet casting of role of Abraham Lincoln. Actor will be tall. (Empire)
