With Alice in Wonderland‘s release imminent news has broken of a new Tim Burton project. He and Timur Bekmambetov are set to produce a big screen adaptation of the upcoming novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith.
The film will tell the little known, and entirely fabricated, tale of Abraham Lincoln’s lifelong battle with vampires. The pair last teamed up on the underwhelming 9 but considering the popularity of Grahame-Smith’s previous work they should have a good script to work with.
Seth Grahame-Smith also wrote and adapted Pride and Prejudice and Zombies which is both a much loved novel and soon to be a Natalie Portman starring feature film. I much more excited about the combination of Portman and zombies at the moment but that could all change when we know exactly who will be directing the Lincoln/vampire face-off.
