“I have to tell you something very Important.”
“Oh My god my have crabs!”
“No…Yes,but thats not the point. Please, I have something important to tell you, meet me at the picnic table in 10 seconds…”
“Hello beth you may recall 10 seconds ago I asked you to meet me here, at the picnic table…”
…….OK you should all get the movie quote, if you don’t? Well then how dare you call yourself a nerd!!! Ok, so you may recall last week I wrote column making a big deal out of the the “Then unknown” Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter…Well First things first. Here is the made for commercial ad for the book (not the film)…Which looks funny as hell. But that is just part of this news..I came down from the mountain and called dibs like Moses…
Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov, are teaming up again to produce a project:They’re banging out the JUST released book, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith, author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
reports the deal, but doesn’t have much additional detail. Grahame-Smith will adapt the screenplay from his own novel. Interesting choice, as when an author adapts his own work for the screen there’s always a chance that he won’t be able to get any distance from the material. That can make paring down the text a problematic enterprise. Then again, who better to get inside the material than the creator?
