Eric Bana in Talks to Become Vampire Hunter ‘Abraham Lincoln’

The news breaks earlier and earlier these days, which is why the following should be taken with a thick grain of salt: TheWrap is reporting that Australian actor Eric Bana is circling the title role in 20th Century Fox’s big screen adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. While Bana hasn’t landed the coveted role yet, he’s scheduled to meet with director Timur Bekmambetov soon. The epistolary-style book is written as a biography of Lincoln based on “secret diaries” he kept that were given to the author by a vampire named Henry Sturges, who saved Lincoln’s life when he battled a vampire as a teenager. The two develop a friendship and Sturges teaches Lincoln how to hunt and kill vampires. Tim Burton is producing Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which is scheduled for release on June 22, 2012. What do you guys think of this potential casting?
