You’ve heard about this, right?
In 2010, author Seth Grahame-Smith wrote this book about the untold story of our 16th president, and how he secretly waged war against the undead.
I’ve been wanting to read this for a while now, as it just seems like a fun read. It certainly got tons of good press and reviews.
And inevitably, whenever a book makes some money, someone comes along and turns it into a movie.
The trailer finally hit the interwebs last week. Check it out, holmes:
I really want to like this movie. I really do.
But 2 words scare the crap out of me where this movie is concerned……….
I can’t fucking STAND Tim Burton. He just puts too much ‘weird’ in all his movies for my taste. And I really do think he does it just because he thinks people expect him to be weird, and not because it makes sense to do it that way. Plus, without his pal Johnny Depp agreeing to be in almost all of his films, I think we wouldn’t have heard anything from him for 10 years now.
Anyway, Mr. Burton is thankfully NOT directing this movie, he’s just producing it, so I am going to still hold out some hope that this doesn’t turn out to be “Edward Scissorhands 2”.
