News have broke that “Alice and Wonderland” director Tim Burton has teamed with “Wanted” director Timur Bekmambetov to produce a movie version of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” the Seth Grahame-Smith novel that Grand Central Publishing released today.

Similar to his former period tale, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” which has been picked up by Lionsgate and will star Natalie Portman, “Lincoln” will have its own macabre style turn featuring a president who not only saves a Union and frees millions of slaves, but is also a valiant force against the undead.
