Tim Burton and Timur Bekmambetov joined forces yet again to bring our five dollar president to the big screen in the second greatest historical figure ever to drive stakes into the hearts of the unholy. The first, of course, being Jesus Christ. Seth Grahame-Smith, he what brung us Jane Austen's timely original Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and who opened the door on several lesser summer reading mashups, followed his success by showing us the Buffyesque slayer that was our 16th president.

Bekmambetov has now decided that he will also be directing the adaptation. He envisions it more like a historical biopic. But, you know, with crossbows that shoot stakes around people's heads. Bekmambetov is undeniably a visually stunning director, but I'm not really sure he'd be the boy for this. After Sleepy Hollow and Sweeney Todd, I'd be more inclined to give the keys to Burton -- provided he promised not to let his stupid friends Johnny and Helena drive along. Though Carter'd make a hell of a Mary Todd. But it appears the self-proclaimed Russian Spielberg is gonna helm this badboy. So the odds are pretty fair that Eli Whitney somehow crafts a cotton gin that's actually some kind of loom of destiny.
