Anthony Mackie has landed the part of Will, the best friend of Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) who is said to be a part of the vampire killing. Dominic Cooper will play the President's mentor, Henry, who teaches Honest Abe the art of slaying vampires. We reported earlier this month that Joaquin Phoenix was in talks for the Henry role, although it seems Fox is going in another direction.
It still isn't clear when production will start on Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, although with the casting starting to fall into place, we should have more updates soon. A June 22, 2012 release date has already been set for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
