Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Queen Victoria: Demon Hunter

Reaching the point of over-saturation

http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/news...s.php?id=14329
Indiana, 1818. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin, where a nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his suffering mother's bedside. She's been stricken with something the old-timers call "Milk Sickness."

"My baby boy..." she whispers before dying.

Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire.

When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, "henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose..." Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an ax, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House.

While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years.

Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of our greatest president for the first time-all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of our nation.
Saw this book at TARGET. It looked interesting.



And now Queen Victoria
http://www.shocktillyoudrop.com/news...s.php?id=13789

Synopsis: London, 1838. Queen Victoria is crowned; she receives the orb, the scepter, and an arsenal of bloodstained weaponry. If Britain is about to become the greatest power of the age, there’s the small matter of the undead to take care of first. Demons stalk the crown, and political ambitions have unleashed ravening hordes of zombies even within the nobility itself.

But rather than dreams of demon hunting, Queen Victoria's thoughts are occupied by Prince Albert. Can she dedicate her life to saving her country when her heart belongs elsewhere? With lashings of glistening entrails, decapitations, zombies, and foul demons, this masterly new portrait will give a fresh understanding of a remarkable woman, a legendary monarch, and quite possibly the best demon hunter the world has ever seen.
How about a Justice League(League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) of Ex Presidents(Not like the SNL skit)

Lincoln
Washington
FDR (in the watchtower role)
JFK ( the pretty boy)
Teddy Roosevelt (carrying big stake)

Let's have them team up and fight supernatural evildoers in a big-budget summer blockbuster! Lee Pace as Abe, Anna Friel as Vic. Of course there's a romantic subplot. Box office GOLD!

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is on the way to theaters. Tim Burton has picked up the rights to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

Will somebody stop Tim Burton from making another insane film.
Someone else with a better understanding of fantastic storytelling namely the director of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
That's IMO.

Christopher Walken as Lincoln and Johnny Depp as Booth? I wonder what Elfman's score will be like?

Teddy Roosevelt: Were-Wolf Hunter.

That one would make more sense.

JFK: MANPHIBIAN FIGHTER, his PT-109 missiong was to stop the Japanese from recruiting MANPHIBIANS to aid their evil empire.

Lincoln as a vampire killer is kind of intriguing (and could be funny, too).

He's also like three feet too short. No, we need an Abe Lincoln/Dark Shadows mashup. Lee Pace (or Christopher Walken, that works too) as Abe vs. Johnny as Barnabas Collins.

Can they get Emily Blunt back to play Victoria? She already has experience with supernatural creatures...

Sounds ideal to me. I haven't read it, but if the trailer is anything to go by (yes it's a book which had its own trailer) it's sort of bizarre, tounge-in-cheek horror fare... which is pretty much every other Burton film ever made.

Alice was a bit of a mess, but maybe here he won't be trying to make a square fit into a circle and the results might be decent enough.

Beyond that? ...enough. I'm even more sick of vampires then I am of superheroes, and unlike the caped crusaders I actually like vampires.
