The $69 million budgeted supernatural feature is directed by Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted") and produced by Tim Burton :

"...Indiana, 1818. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin, where a nine-year-old 'Abraham Lincoln' kneels at his suffering mother's bedside.

" She's been stricken with something the old-timers call 'Milk Sickness'.

"After she dies, grieving Abe learns his mother's fatal affliction was the work of a vampire. When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, 'henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose...'

"Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an axe, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House.While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years..."

The new film will be released June 22, 2012.
