As I mentioned before, the Spielberg Lincoln project is on hold. Rising from the (un)dead, however, is a very different Lincoln film.  Seth Grahame-Smith – he of the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies “fame” – followed up his Austen meal by sharpening his teeth with Lincoln.  Sadly, my library’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has too many holds for me to have yet indulged, but I’m sure it’s a hoot. (To begin with, Nancy Hanks Lincoln’s death is attributed to vampirism, with “milk-sickness” as a cover.)  The best part of this film rendition is that I won’t spend too much time wringing my hands at the historical inaccuracies.
