Tim Burton, Lincoln, and Vampires?

By Katie Needham

Yes, it’s true—President Abraham Lincoln may soon be fighting vampires on the silver screen.  Director Tim Burton has just purchased the film rights to Seth Grahame-Smith’s newly released book, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

The book, released  this month, follows the life story of Lincoln, from childhood to presidency, with the added twist that Lincoln was a trained and deadly vampire hunter.  We first wrote about this last April.  The book’s launch, and news of it possibly becoming a movie, have resulted in this book being one of the top news hits for Abraham Lincoln.
