The bidding is over and 20th Century Fox has won the rights for the project. According to Deadline, a few of the ways that Fox courted Burton and Bekmambetov was to hire a bugle player to trumpet "Taps" while the pair walked around the Fox offices, as well as to have bloody axes and footprints laying around the offices.

On a side note, if you read the comments in Deadline's story you'll see more than a few people that claim to have read Seth Grahame-Smith's screenplay adaptation of his own novel, and they aren't too thrilled about it.

Timur Bekmambetov gave a status update to Empire about all of his projects simmering on the back burner including the latest on the Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter one. Here's the latest from the man in charge:

"That one I'm prepping to direct myself. It is not a comedy at all – it is a very entertaining, epic history lesson for millions and millions of teenagers. If you remember Nightwatch, it is maybe in the vein of that kind of movie.

"We are keeping the traditional look of Lincoln – the big hat and the beard. He has to be historically correct, but with a few special weapons. There is only one book, but there will be many opportunities to develop and explore this world if we get to do sequels. I hope we will start this winter. We are shooting in America."
