No start date for film
Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) is one of those cats in Hollywood that is circling a number of projects.
In addition to the recently announced Black Lightning, he’s also shepherding a live-action adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.”
Bekmambetov told Variety today that there is no start date for the production, but it “will be a serious but entertaining movie that deals with the most interesting and powerful person of the 19th century within an imaginary scenario that he was also an ax-wielding vampire hunter.”
Black Lightning is a remake of the sci-fi Russian film which concerns a boy and his suped up car who take on bad guys.
