Timur Bekmambetov has picked his Mary Todd for his upcoming adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s comic horror novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Those familiar enough with the Lincoln presidency will probably realize that Winston looks nothing like Todd. But then again, our 16th President wasn’t known for hunting the bloodsucking undead.
Winston will be starring opposite Benjamin Walker in the role of Abraham Lincoln. Also in the cast are Dominick Cooper and Anthony Mackie.
If you couldn’t ascertain from the title, the book and film look at the secret life of Lincoln, who turns to hunting vampires during the Civil War after his mother is killed by one. The film is scheduled for a release in the summer of 2012.
