Joaquin Phoenix: Frontrunner in 'Vampire Hunter'

Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly the frontrunner to play Henry Sturges in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

The 36-year-old actor has met on the project and “it’s his if he wants it,” according to Deadline.

The role, which previously was rumored to have been offered to Tom Hardy, “is for Henry, a mythic, ageless figure who turns Lincoln into an axe-throwing expert slayer of vampires.”

Benjamin Walker is set to play the title role in the highly anticipated film!
