Using CliffsNotes is SO 1982; everyone knows that today’s cool kids get their fix of English lit and history by reading Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Soon, though, you won’t even have to read those — you can just watch the movies. And Abe, especially, will be “epic,” according to the director.
Wait, it will be more than epic. It will be an “epic history lesson.” You know. With vampires. Look what director Timur Blackmambatov told Empire magazine:
It is not a comedy at all – it is a very entertaining, epic history lesson for millions and millions of teenagers.
History lesson. Huh. Ok, then.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter the movie is slated for a 2011 release. The film version of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, directed by David O. Russell and starring Natalie Portman, also will be released next year.
