Eric Bana As A Vampire Hunting “Lincoln”?

Aussie actor Eric Bana is being pursued to play former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln in the action/horror tentpole “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” for Fox reports The Wrap.

“Wanted” director Timur Bekmambetov is helming this film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s comedic horror novel which exposes Abe’s secret diaries recounting his mission to eradicate the world of the undead bloodsuckers.

The 6’3 Bana is currently the lead choice for the title role and is set to meet with Bekmambetov shortly. Shooting on the project kicks off early next year for a Summer 2012 release.
