Update on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter


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.
