Honest Abe Kickin' the Undead

From /Film:

There's a new film coming out next year (presumably) called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. This is the basic plot:
The film is based on a novel by Seth Grahame-Smith that surmises Lincoln’s mother was killed by vampires and that the eventual 16th President of the United States dedicated his life to destroying blood-suckers with an axe. He continued to do so all the way through his Presidency.

Sign me up.

Incidentally, I think all the recent mash-ups of historical figures as fantasy heroes are kinda cheesy, but in a cool way (Cowboys vs. Aliens, zombie mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops and now Abe Lincoln).
