Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter (2012) based on Seth Graham-Smith best-selling novel is a fiercely original reimagining of the bio of the 16th President as a 19th century vampire hunter.  Told in a narrative that gives the irony and rhetoric of history new fictional resonance; the movie stars Benjamin Walker as Lincoln and Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Mary Todd.

Directed by Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Daywatch, Nightwatch), Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter is produced by Tim Burton, Jim Lemley and Bekmambetov, and stars Alan Tudyk , Jimmi Simpson, and Dominic Cooper as Henry Sturgess with Rufus Sewell as the Adamic vampire king.
