No doubt looking to capitalize on the burgeoning trend of melding classic literature and historical figures with horror (i.e., Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), now America’s 32nd President will be getting in on the monster fighting action in FDR: American Badass.
Actor Garrett Brawith will make his directorial debut helming this rewriting of history from comedy writer Ross Patterson that sees Franklin Delano Roosevelt slaying werewolves, Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Emperor Hirohito with his weaponized custom wheelchair. Shooting of FDR: American Badass begins in December.
Makes you wonder where this trend will go next. Teddy Roosevelt hunting Sasquatch? Ben Franklin reimagined as Dr. Frankenstein? Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn rafting the Mississippi River fighting a Great White Shark? Billy the Kid vs. Dracula?
Oh, right, they’ve already done that last one.
