There’s no secret how much love I have for producer Tim Burton, but if you’re not already familiar with the work of director Timur Bekmambetov, you’re about to be (and it looks like he just keeps getting better). Much love for the axe!
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of one of the greatest US presidents, and the untold story that shaped a nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (director of Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history’s greatest hunter of the undead.
