First Look At ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER

The New York Times has given us our first look at Benjamin Walker as our 16th president Abraham Lincoln. Of course, this is the presidnet who also protected us from the undead as portrayed in Timur Bekmambetov’s adaption of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

The film is currently in production for release next June and the Times piece does a nice job summing up the production and the zietgeist surrounding Graham-Smith’s alternate history story of vampires taking an active role in the world of the 19th century. For more details on things like the 8,000 costumes created or rented for the production, how Bekmambetov is squeezing every cent out of the film’s $70 million budget and other tidbits, pop on over and check out the story.
