Ben Walker will star as the prez accompanied by his smoking hot first lady played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. They'll be joined by Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie and Jimmi Simpson.
Wait a minute... Mary Elizabeth Winstead is Mary Todd Lincoln? One of probably the least attractive first ladies ever? Kudos Hollywood.
If I wasn't convinced by the premise - which I was - now I'm definitely convinced. No but seriously, chances for Mary Elizabeth Winstead in more ass-kicking action? That was the only thing lacking from Scott Pilgrim.

Reznor clarifies (AV Club):

He had been considering taking on the project at the time of the media leak but “hadn't made up my mind completely, because various aspects of the project were changing”—although he admitted he still felt the need to give credence to the rumor earlier in the week, as “at that moment I thought I would be doing it.” (He adds, “Confused yet? Apparently I am.”) Anyway, it’s a moot point now, as Reznor has confirmed he will be neither acting in nor scoring the film.
"Basically, I came to my senses, realized that this project is asininely stupid, and pulled out before my dignity became permanently tarnished, much like David O. Russell and that Pride and Zombies abortion."
aw there was a part of me that woud have liked to have seen him do it... guess the bitchin from some of his fans scared him off.

That means you're for it?

Hey if Reznor doesn't want to join the party, his loss. I never pegged him for the "worried about my dignity" type...

I'm only "trying" to bash the concept? You mean you want me to be even more derisive about such flim-flammery?

Re: actors testing for Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

i'd love to see Robert Knepper of Prison Break & Heroes at least try out....He's a good actor, and i think has the look .

he's also not too short (almost 6 feet tall)

Re: actors testing for Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

That's unfortunate Reznor dropped out. I'm curious about his comment that aspects of the project were changing at the time of the media leak.

No, I'm dead set against it, and will remain so following my death.

Reznor has an Oscar now; that sort of thing can change one's perception of one's self. You think that if Natalie Portman weren't expecting, that she'd still be interested in PP&Z after her Oscar win? Unlikely, I suspect.

And that is quite enough of that. Regardless of your opposing views, there is no cause for you to be mocking, so please step back from that line.

Need I point out Ben Kingsley's turns in Thunderbirds and Bloodrayne?

Or Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux?

Or Michael Caine in, for example, Jaws 4?
