Tim Burton to produce 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'
March 2, 2010
"Lincoln" is not set up anywhere but Burton and Bekmambetov, who are not attached to direct, hope to change that soon. One of the factors that cemented the filmmakers' interest was a peek at an in-house trailer for the book made by Grand Central.

On the set of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
This was great fun to be part of, and I am greatly entertained to read speculation as details of ALVH 's future are released.  I'm grateful of escaping ridicule for my performance in the book's promotional unveiling. Thanks to Adam and everyone at Bodega for making a grabbing slick production, and leaving any criticism out of the spectrum. With less than two weeks from set up to debut, Bodega performed a minor miracle and redefined the term Book Trailer. I have no doubt the trailer played a big part in the book's initial success, climbing to No. 4 on the NY Times Best Seller list in the first week.
  Location for recording the trailer was Alder Manor in Yonkers, NY on Feb. 13. This was a magical place to explore and thankfully spared from ruin as might have been its fate a few years earlier. Please follow link to Scouting NY and see this incredible country estate.    Michael Krebs
Alder Manor
Alder Manor was built in 1912 by William Boyce Thompson, an extremely successful copper magnate,
his plan was for a 72-room country estate for entertaining (he lived in New York City at the time)
on 22 acres of hilltop land in then rural Yonkers.      Mansion photos courtesy of Scouting NY

The curator shared his knowledge of William Boyce Thompson's  great love of music, and how it played constantly on the roller organ with wind pipes (pictured above).
