Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history's greatest hunter of the undead.
Burton, Bekmambetov, and the cast and crew of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter welcome you to the secret, action-packed life of an American icon. A hero by day...and a superhero by night. Their film has the action, thrills, cutting-edge visual effects and 3D, and monstrous creatures of the undead, you'd expect from a title that includes the words "vampire hunter." But through its portrait of a beloved historical figure, it is grounded in reality. This is the Lincoln you know--with one additional quality of which you were unaware. Until now.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter stars Benjamin Walker as the titular hero; Dominic Cooper as Henry Sturges, Lincoln's mentor in vampire hunting; Anthony Mackie as William Johnson, Lincoln's valet and friend; and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Mary Todd Lincoln, Abe's wife. The screenplay is by Seth Grahame-Smith and Simon Kinberg, based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. The producers are Tim Burton, Timur Bekmambetov, and Jim Lemley. Timur Bekmambetov is the director.
