“We are keeping the traditional look of Lincoln – the big hat and the beard. He has to be historically correct, but with a few special weapons. There is only one book, but there will be many opportunities to develop and explore this world if we get to do sequels… I hope we will start this winter. We are shooting in America.”
Director Timur Bekmambetov
“President Lincoln’s mother is killed by a supernatural creature, which fuels his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers.”
So did vampires actually hire the Conspirator to kill Abraham Lincoln?
