Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker, Million Dollar Baby) is in talks to star with Benjamin Walker in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for 20th Century Fox, reports Deadline. Mackie will play the role of Will, Lincoln’s best friend. The site claims the role is a good one as he gets to be in the center of the vampire slaying. Variety adds that Dominic Cooper (Hello Darkness) is in final negotiations to play “Henry”. Director Timur Bekmambetov is putting together a group of up and comers to headline the movie that arrives in theaters June 22, 2012.
“Seth Grahame-Smith’s revision of a Jane Austen classic blew readers’ minds and became an instant national bestseller. Now, he tackles our greatest president… 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. His valiant, bloody fight against the undead was all but lost to history, until Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln. Using the journal as his guide, Seth reconstructs Lincoln’s life story and uncovers the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation. You don’t know Abe. Honest.”
