The film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is underway with Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) at the helm. In the starring role as Lincoln is Broadway actor Benjamin Walker.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a fictional biography detailing Lincoln’s life as a vampire hunter, rise as president, and battles against vampires during the Civil War.

Walker will portray Lincoln from early adulthood to the middle-aged president, complete with his famous beard.

Sounds ridiculous, right? Ridiculous fun.
