Adrien Brody, Josh Lucas and Benjamin Walker in running for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Two films that have been on my radar for awhile are PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES and ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER. The first film has been moving slowly forward, but the second looks to be plowing full steam ahead and even has a list of actors who are testing for the coveted part of Abraham Lincoln. Adrien Brody (PREDATORS), Josh Lucas (SWEET HOME ALABAMA), Benjamin Walker (FLAGS OF OUR FATHERS), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (FASTER) and James D’Arcy (THE AMERICAN HAUNTING) are on the list of actors in the running. The story follows a young Abe Lincoln who wields an axe and is one of the greatest vampire hunters around. He seeks revenge on the living dead who killed his mother and he wreaks havoc on them and their slave-owning protectors.
The novel was written by Seth Grahame-Smith who will also be penning the script. ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov and will be released in 3D.
