Bana Vies For Vampire Hunter Role

1 min read

Eric Bana, Star Trek XI‘s Romulan Nero, is in contention for the role of a famous U.S. President, and one who hunts vampires.

If all goes well with his meeting with director Timur Bekmambetov, Bana would play Abraham Lincoln in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the film version of Seth Graham-Smith‘s novel.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter was written as a “biography of Lincoln based on ‘secret diaries’ he kept.” The diaries were given to the author by a vampire who taught Lincoln how to hunt and kill vampires after saving Lincoln’s life as a teen when the young Abe battled a vampire.

Bana’s height works in his favor as a potential Lincoln. He is a rare tall leading actor; at 6’3″ he is only an inch shorter than Lincoln was.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is scheduled to be released on June 22, 2012.
