Tim Burton Will Produce Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
Yesterday, the Internet spontaneously embraced the book trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter; today, the book came out (with a reported half-million dollar advance); now comes the news that Tim Burton will produce a movie based on the book. Not bad for a two-day stretch.
From THR’s Heat Vision blog:
Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov are teaming to bring the Seth Grahame-Smith novel “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” to the big screen
The book was released today by Grand Central Publishing.
Burton and Bekmambetov will produce the adaptation with Jim Lemley.
Grahame-Smith, who combined zombies and Jane Austen in the best-selling novel “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” will write the screenplay.
In case you missed it, here’s the trailer, which has already gotten more than 50,000 views on YouTube. Could this outdo Alice in Wonderland?
