    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.

    But Johnny Depp's too pretty to play Abe Lincoln!

    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. :rommie: 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.

    I've known about the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter thing for a couple months, and I still don't quite know what exactly to think of it. It could be... entertaining, at least. Tim Burton has a penchant for films with gothic, horror themes, so I'm not surprised that he's going for this one.
