Abraham Lincoln Will Kill Vampires in Theaters 2012

Fox has acquired the rights to adapt Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which is based on a book about our 16th president killing real-life vampires. It’s going to be helmed by Wanted director, Timur Bekmambetov, and produced by both Timur and Tim Burton. Budget is planned to be $69 million with a 2012 release date.

During the time of the Civil War, vampires have been running amok and feeding on slaves. Lincoln’s quest to end slavery and to become a politician was in part due to his mission to slay vampires.

It’s a cool concept, and I wonder if there will be more books like this. I got it, “George Washington: Zombie Outbreak Survivor”, or how about “JFK: An American President in London”. Ok, maybe not.
