Tim Burton to produce 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'

"Alice in Wonderland" director Tim Burton and "Wanted" director Timur Bekmambetov are set to produce the film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," according to multiple reports.

LOCAL TRIVIA TANGENT: The book begins in Rhinebeck, "one of those upstate towns that time forgot." The family of Grahame-Smith's wife, Erin, lives in Rhinebeck and own Al Stickle 5 & Dime store there.

Grahame-Smith is said to be on board to adapt the screenplay. Grahame-Smith's first mash-up novel, "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies," is in development as a film starring Natalie Portman.

The Freeman spoke with Grahame-Smith recently and will publish the story on Friday. In the meantime, check out the trailer for the book.
