Props to our good friends at Latino Review, who received a lot of sh*t when their breaking story was debunked. Only thing is, they were 50% right. The site had reported that Robin McLeavy (the psycho-chick in the Aussie horror The Loved Ones) would be starring as Mary Todd, Abe Lincoln’s love interest and eventual wife in Timur Bekmambetov’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 3D for Twentieth Century Fox.
McLeavy is now confirmed for a role, only she’ll be playing the role of Abraham Lincoln’s mother, “Nancy Hanks Lincoln.”
Spoiler Warning: The role is brief but sets the tone for the action, reports Deadline. It’s her death at the hands of a bloodsucker that hardens young Abe Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) into going to war against the growing scourge of vampires in the 1800s.
Fox will release in theaters on June 22, 2012.
