Tom Hardy Set for 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'?

Tom Hardy Set for 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'?

Tom Hardy has been offered the role of Henry Sturges in the highly-anticipated flick Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, according to Bloody Disgusting.

The pic is the fictionalized story of Abraham Lincoln, whose mother dies due a debt owed by his father to a vampire, which causes him to take action to eliminate all the vampires.

The film is based on the book by Seth Grahame-Smith, which is written from the documents “given” to the author by the vampire Henry Sturges, which would be Tom‘s role in the movie.

While Tom was close to signing on to the flick Snow White and the Huntsman, it has been reported that Johnny Depp will end up taking the role.

    I guess I need to read the book cause this sounds really dumb, could surprise me though.

    I think Tim Burton is set to produce the movie so it would likely be some quirky surreal tale, rather than something dumb, hopefully. Is Tom Hardy being offered every single script in HW? Cool, because he is a terrific actor! Hope he chooses wisely

    The book is very good and unique and should make a great movie. I love Tom Hardy, but not so sure about him as Abe, and not so sure about Tim Burton as the producer. He tends to make things too strange.

    Tom Hardy is so dreamy<3 I don’t like this movie plot though…..I’m sick and tired of vampires right now. However, I want to see her in more movies :)

    Hardy is supposed to be Henry Sturges, the vampire, not Abe
