Joaquin Phoenix Coming Out Of Retirement For Vampire Slaying?

Joaquin Phoenix is being rumored to return to the screen once again in another weird role, but this time not as himself – as Abraham Lincoln’s vampire-slaying teacher.

The Golden Globe winner is being eyed to play the role of Henry, who teaches Lincoln how to hunt the undead while ‘Flags of Our Fathers’ star Benjamin Walker has been tagged for the title role according to Deadline.

Director Timur Bekmambetov has also signed on to produce the movie along with Tim Burton and ‘9’ producer Jim Lemley. So it sounds like this will be not only an interesting cast, but a certainly unique production of the film as well…
