Tim Burton - Tim Burton's 'Astounding Imagination' Praised

Tim Burton has an ''astounding imagination''.

The eccentric director is serving as a producer on Timur Bekmambetov's 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' and Benjamin Walker, who plays the titular character, revealed both Tim and Timur's ''unique styles'' made working on the movie very special.

He told flicksandbits.com: ''They're great. Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov really bring their unique styles and feel to 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'.

''They're both highly intelligent, funny, macabre, visual geniuses. What's fun is putting trust in that and realising what they're going for is gonna be something you couldn't possibly imagine. It takes trust and a lot of work and dedication.

''The more specific something is, the more fun it is for an actor. Both of their imaginations are astounding!''

Benjamin also revealed he appreciated the pair's ''macabre humour'' during filming.

He explained: ''They bring a sense of the visuals that are rarely seen in film today, and also this unique macabre humour that is charming and exciting.

''Timur always wants to do what has not been done. He wants to create an image that hasn't been seen. He wants to kill someone in a way they've never been killed - and that's very exciting, because then your not just hitting people with an axe, you're doing something very specific. ''
