Timur Bekmatebov's high-concept action horror flick ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER is moving full steam ahead: With a cast that already includes Ben Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie and Mary Elisabeth Winstead (pictured below), the film just added Jimmi Simpson to the bloody shenanigans.
I recognize Simpson as one of the two disgusting McPoyle brothers on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", but the actor has an extensive filmography, appearing in such genre flicks as STAY ALIVE, ZODIAC and the Stephen King-penned mini-series "Rose Red". He'll soon be seen in Joe Lynch's KNIGHTS OF BADASSDOM.
Simpson, incidentally, will play Abe Lincoln's right hand man.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER is about to begin production in Louisiana; it has a JUNE 22, 2012 release date.
I'm guessing Mrs. Lincoln never looked quite like this
