Yet another Lincoln film has overlooked Liam Neeson.

Benjamin Walker, the actor known mostly for Broadway's Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson and for nearly being a blue fur-covered X-Man, has signed to star in the title role of Timur Bekmambetov's adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The source material is exactly what it sounds like--as in, not Lincoln vanquishing the metaphorical vampirism of slave traders living off the "blood" of their cargo; just actual fucking vampires--and, unsurprisingly, comes from Seth Grahame-Smith, writer of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and a guy who seemingly thinks it's hilarious to add vogue monsters to anything and everything. Kafka's Werewolf Metamorphosis is pretty much gonna write itself, huh, Seth?
