It's just the fad that never ends!
20th Century Fox wants a bite out of the box-office with their own vampire saga and has won the bid for the film Seth Grahame-Smith's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
Apparently, the studio wanted the movie so bad, they went to great lengths in the pitch meeting to prove. From the moment the filmmakers arrived on the lot for their meeting, they were bombarded with gimmicks associated with the flick - everything from parking signs stating: “Parking for Vampire Hunters Only, Park at your own risk" to bloody footprints in the parking lot to silver bullets in a bowl at the check-in desk.
Their show paid off and the Fox plans to go into pre-production immediately. They've already planned a $69 million dollar budget, snagged Tim Burton to produce and plan for a 2012.
Wasting no time at all! Too bad we could care less about another effing vampire flick!
Are U looking forward to seeing this made?
