Timur Bekmambetov to Direct Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter?
With his films Night Watch, Day Watch, and even Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov has proven to be a visionary director. Recently the filmmaker had several projects on his plate that he was set to produce, but now it seems as if he may be at the helm of one of them ... Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter!
According to an article over on Deadline New York Bekmambetov could end up directing the toothy flick with the honest president! Dig on the linkage for the whole story. We'll keep an eye on things.
Timur would be shooting from a script penned by author Seth Grahame-Smith himself.
"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."
