In a development that I’m sure is humiliating to poor Robin McLeavy, the actress, who was previously rumored to be playing the part of Abraham Lincoln‘s crazy wife Mary Todd in the big-screen adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, is now playing the 16th president/vampire hunter’s mother instead. Whoa! Next I’ll be telling you that Robin McLeavy was cast as Helen Keller but got switched to Annie Sullivan instead. That’s a good joke, trust me.

The movie will also star Benjamin Walker, Anthony Mackie, Dominic Cooper and Jimmi Simpson. As for a plot synopsis, I think you’ve got pretty much all you need from the title. Abraham Lincoln hunts vampires. If you need anything more than this I’m not sure a website is going to solve your myriad of problems. (via The Playlist)

Latino Review reported earlier in the week that Australian actress McLeavy had won the role after following up on a tip. A very wrong tip.

Take all of my Lincoln‘s wife jokes from Monday and apply them to Winstead. Apologies for any confusion. Last thing I want to do is undercut the artistic merits of this super-gimmicky film. (THR)

Australian actress Robin McLeavy has been cast as Mary Todd in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the film that re-imagines the 16th President of the United States as kick-ass vampire slayer. It’s said that McLeavy was in the running for the part along with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, but director Timur Bekmambetov opted to cast up and coming talent in the end. Which means less money spent on actors and more spent on decapitations and removing fake blood stains from stovepipe hats. (Latino Review)
