Finally we’ve gotten the first official image from the long talked about historic mash-up Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, and it’s truly presidential in stature.
The flick is being helmed by Timur Bekmambetov and stars Benjamin Walker, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell, Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jimmi Simpson, Alan Tudyk and Robin McLeavy. That’s one hell of a cast if you ask us!
Fox is aiming at a June 22nd, 2012, release for the Tim Burton-produced horror adventure. Check out the eye candy below courtesy of the New York Times.
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.
