Abraham Lincoln vs. the immortal undead.

Last year, Seth Grahame-Smith gave the world Pride and Prejudice and Zombies ­– a retelling of Jane Austen’s classic with all the zombie and martial arts mayhem that the original was missing. While Pride and Prejudice and Zombies adds new roadside attractions to an existing highway, Grahame-Smith’s follow-up, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, doesn’t appear to spring from specific source material. Ostensibly, it is based on “The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln” and details our 16th President’s covert war against the undead.

Deadline reports that Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov are already at work on an adaptation. In the meantime, enjoy the “book trailer”:
