And the search for star power continues for Timur Bekmambetov’s take on Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Offers are out and Fox is hoping one star in particular bites.
According to Bloody Disgusting Tom Hardy (pictured right; Inception, Bronson) has been offered the role of “Henry Sturgess” in the film.
Twentieth Century Fox is aiming at a June 22, 2012 release for the Tim Burton produced horror adventure.
“When Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the “milk sickness.” Only later did he learn that his mother’s deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect a debt owed by Lincoln’s father. When Abe learned the truth, he vowed revenge and kept one passion hidden throughout his life: the brutal elimination of all vampires. His valiant, bloody fight against the undead was all but lost to history, until Grahame-Smith stumbled upon the secret journal of Abraham Lincoln.
Using the journal as his guide, Seth reconstructs Lincoln’s life story and uncovers the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation. You don’t know Abe. Honest.”
