Who knew Abraham Lincoln led such a secret life outside of his presidency lol?
OK so clearly this is Fiction, but still...what a fun concept.
About two years ago i saw this interesting book that had just came out called 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' by Seth Grahame-Smith. Reading the back cover it showed she was also the author of the NY Times Best Seller 'Pride And Predjudice And Zombies'. Which...like the title entails...fuses the 'Pride & Predjudice' story with the scenario of Zombies being invited into the storyline. Similar to what she's doing here with good ol Honest Abe.
The story is described as follows "The epistolary-style book is written as a biography of Abraham Lincoln, based on "secret diaries" kept by the 16th president and given to the author by a vampire named Henry Sturges."
I will admit, it was a fun read. And now its being made into a movie & will hit theatres June 22nd of this year. Here's the first trailer thats been released for the movie...just in time for Presidents Day!
The role of Abe is played by Benjamin Walker. A guy whos no stranger to playing Presidents as he is rumoured to have turned down the role of The Beast in the X-Men: First Class movie to play Andrew Jackson in the Broadway Musical 'Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson'.
Not alot of big names are in this film which says to me that it will probably be good. Well i mean considering the far-fetched story...who WOULDNT want to see what life was like in American in the 1800's had Vampires been thrown into the mix.
I know i would....and on June 22nd i can!
Happy Presidents Day!
