For those of you who love your horror movies to include some history, I’ve got some great news. There’s a new film coming out in June of 2012 called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter that looks very promising. The director of Night Watch, Day Watch and Wanted is bringing horror nerds everywhere a new take on Honest Abe. In this movie, Abraham Lincoln vows to seek vengeance on all vampires after a bloodsucker drains the life out of his mother. Produced by Tim Burton, the film has a great cast, including Alan Tudyk (Tucker and Dale vs. Evil), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Dominic Cooper (An Education), and Benjamin Walker (Kinsey) as Abe. Although the film doesn’t seem to be very factual about the life of President Lincoln, I don’t think he’d complain too much about being portrayed in such a courageous fashion.
