Mary Elizabeth Winstead / Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

After having a whole slew of evil ex-boyfriends in Scott Pilgrim vs the World, it looks like the next significant other for Mary Elizabeth Winstead will be the 16th President of the United States. Heat Vision reports the beautiful actress has landed the role of Abraham Lincoln's wife Mary Todd in Timur Bekmambetov's adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's historical action horror story Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Earlier this week we heard that Robin McLeavy had landed the role, but those reports have turned out to be untrue. They had a 50/50 chance of being right though since both actresses were the top choices for the role.

Winstead joins an interesting cast featuring Benjamin Walker as Abraham Lincoln, Anthony Mackie as his best friend Will, and Dominic Cooper as a mysterious man named Henry Stugress. The story kicks off with the revelation that Lincoln's mother was killed by a supernatural creature, which fueled his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers. The book depicts the 16th US president as an axe-throwing highly trained vampire killer. It sounds like this project is coming together much easier than the adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith's other horror infused period piece Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which may or may not have a third director lined up to get the project off the ground. Thoughts?

ever see Death Race? I'd argue her role in Scott Pilgrim looks nothing like her, every other movie being on the contrary

I still don't get why Honest Abe is a Vampire Hunter, but that's the beauty of Historical Fiction.
