Timur Bekmambetov Could Direct ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’

In a new article over at Deadline, it was revealed that Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Day Watch) could end up directing Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a film he was originally only set to produce alongside Tim Burton. Being adapted by Seth Grahame-Smith from his own novel revision of the Jane Austen classic, when Abraham Lincoln was nine years old, his mother died from an ailment called the “milk sickness.” Only later did he learn that his mother’s deadly affliction was actually the work of a local vampire, seeking to collect a debt owed by Lincoln’s father. When Abe learned the truth, he vowed revenge and kept one passion hidden throughout his life: the brutal elimination of all vampires.
