Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln does not hunt vampires, but he will be married to Sally Field. Me? Nothing against two time Oscar winner Field, but I’d take the vampire hunting. I just really hate vampires.

Field will star opposite Daniel Day-Lewis as The Great Emancipator, and I just realized that particular nickname for President Abraham Lincoln sounds dirty. *Chuckles Heartily* As Mary Todd Lincoln, Field is expected to have a major role. Spielberg praised Field for being able to portray the “fragility and complexity that was Mary Todd Lincoln.” (Read: Craziness.) However, her age is a little awkward: Field is 67, older than Mary Todd was when she finally kicked the bucket. Eh, she still looks good. She’ll pull it off – worst case scenario, Spielberg calls someone at Industrial Light and Magic. Badda bing, badda boom.

Screenwriter Tony Kushner adapted the book Team of Rivals by Pulitzer Prize-winner Doris Kearns Goodwin, which chronicles the president’s later, Civil War-ier years. Lincoln is pushing to emancipate theaters in late 2012. (LA Times)
