British thesp Rufus Sewell – star of the incredibly underrated Dark City – has landed the role of “Adam,” the lead vampire villain, in 20th Century Fox’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, reports Variety.
Sewell joins Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Dominic Cooper in the Timur Bekmambetov summer tentpole.
Based on the bestselling book by Seth Grahame-Smith, the pic “revolves around the president’s quest to rid the world of vampires, presented as the real conflict behind the Civil War.”
Bekmambetov will co-produce with Tim Burton and Jim Lemley.
