Better get familiar with the name Seth Grahame-Smith because you will be hearing that name come up a lot. He's the author behind literary mash-ups of Sense, Sensibility and Sea Monsters; Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (which is currently in production), and finally, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

His concept is simple: take a classic novel/property and throw some fantastical elements into the story such as zombies, monsters or vampires. Pretty fun idea, and it definitely gets people picking up and reading "classic", or rather, more like reading a form of a classic.  Close enough.

So, now we have our first look at his first book-turned-adaptation, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER.

So, not too much info on any premise, but a lot of action scenes. Also, I guess old honest Abe wielded the axe on his free time. I'm curious how the vampires will play into the Civil War. I haven't read this book yet, but I've read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I enjoyed Smith's interweaving of history and fantasy, and it made for a fun read.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER will be released June 22, 2012 starring Benjamin Walker, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper, Rufus Sewell, and Anthony Mackie.
