Burton To Tackle Vampires
TIM BURTON is re-teaming with WANTED director TIMUR BEKMAMBETOV to battle bloodsuckers by bringing new book ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER to the big screen.
The newly-released novel was penned by Seth Grahame-Smith, the writer behind upcoming movie Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, starring Natalie Portman.
Burton and Bekmambetov, who previously teamed up to produce 2009 fantasy film 9, have now signed a producing deal to help turn Grahame-Smith's story into a movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The book re-imagines the life of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln as a highly-trained vampire killer.
