Actors Test for ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’

Screentesting is about to get underway for Twentieth Century Fox’s macabre 3D Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel (he also wrote the script) that will be directed by Timur Bekmambetov and produced by Timur, Tim Burton, and Jim Lemley. The studio has set a June 22, 2012 release for the film and has been focused on casting since November. Deadline has list of actors who’ll be screentesting for the role of young Abe Lincoln this week and next…. wait for it, and GO: Benjamin Walker (basically an unknown), James D’Arcy (Exorcist: The Beginning, An American Haunting, Rise), Adrien Brody (Giallo, Predators, King Kong), Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Raven), Josh Lucas (American Psycho, Tell-Tale), and Timothy Olyphant (The Crazies, Perfect Getaway). If these were your only options, who would you cast?
The movie is a 3D re-imagining of Lincoln’s life that depicts the 16th president as an axe-throwing, highly accomplished killer of vampires, an obsession of his since those bloodsuckers supposedly took the life of his mother. Taking revenge, Lincoln wreaks havoc on the vampires and their slave-owning protectors. Only in Hollywood would such wild fantasy with the reputation of one of America’s greatest Presidents be in such demand.
