Over the past weekend we brought you the story of Benjamin Walker landing the role of Abraham Lincoln in the adaptation of Seth-Graham Smith’s novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and now Deadline is reporting that Phoenix may sign on to the project as the man who teaches Abe how to kill vampires. The role Phoenix may play is described as:
a mythic, ageless figure who turns Lincoln into an axe-throwing expert slayer of vampires
Smith’s novel presents an interesting concept, but is it the right role for Phoenix? Leave us your thoughts below.
