THE BIG BUZZ WEEKEND EDITION: Emancipation Assassination

PLANET GRIFFIN returns in time for THE BIG BUZZ: WEEKEND EDITION! It seems a little weird to come across this item after a NEXT 100 entry featuring the Great Emancipator as a hater of werewolves, because apparently, he detests bloodsuckers as well!

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER is the latest book published tuesday under Grand Central Publishing, by Revisionist writer SETH GRAHAME-SMITH, who introduced the world to the best selling (and highly unexpected) PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES! (A title, by the way, which has LIONSGATE and NATALIE PORTMAN'S name all over it in Hollywood)
The new book 'reimagines' the former U.S. President as an axe-welding vampire assassin whose ascension to the oval office has not slacked his vow of revenge against the undead legions after witnessing his mother's murder as a young boy. The mix of horror-adventure dropped within the context of real history made for an irresistible combination to the writer and publisher, so much so that they produced an in-house trailer to promote the upcoming release.

Needless to say, the results were sensational... Especially to the likes of Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted, Nightwatch), who are collaborating again to bring Historical horror to the big screen. If it turns out half as badass as the in-house trailer, I'll definitely be there to buy the ticket and take the ride! This is PLANET GRIFFIN and THE BIG BUZZ WEEKEND EDITION!
