I find the concept interesting, and that nobody protested against it. Is it because so much time passed between Lincoln and today? I could imagine that if you do "Barack Obama: Vampire Hunter" and maybe let him run around like Blade that you'd get criticized into oblivion.
Probably not in the way you think. I think the people that would be offended would actually be the ones who *don't* like Obama.

@JarrodRussell go back in the thread...I'm sure you'll see Gaith's protest against this project and the debate that ensued.

Also never saw a Timbur Bekmambetov film. I remember seeing the trailer to Wanted years ago, which looked dreadful, but maybe this'll seem more enticing.
I've seen Night Watch, which was a convoluted mess...but also strangely captivating. Hopefully this film makes a bit more sense, though.

Re: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter produced by Tim Burton in the work

Which version of "Night Watch" did you see? I thought it didn't make much sense either, but then I found out that the version released internationally appears to be 10 minutes shorter than the original russian release (but I don't know if the full version makes more sense, since I didn't like it enough to search for it).

I don't remember. I saw the film several years ago via Netflix, sometime during 2005-2007, so it was whatever version of the film was available on DVD in the United States at that time.

Re: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter produced by Tim Burton in the work

^That was probably the short version then. According to Wikipedia the original cut was only released on DVD in Russia and some countries in Europe.

Shouldn't there be a trailer released for this film soon? Maybe with "Underworld: Awakening", since they're both about vampires?

If this movie is a hit Asylum will have to do SOME kind of knock-off. I don't see why it couldn't be Obama.
Okay, it's official, The Asylum has started pre-production on... Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies.

Yeah. I'm still fully convinced this movie is going to kick ass.

Re: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter produced by Tim Burton in the work

I love it, it all looks awesome, but (and this will sound nitpicky) the completed Washington Monument irks me. Construction stopped during the Civil War, and that's why the top half is a different color than the bottom.
