Will Joaquin Phoenix Return to Acting in "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter?" 


Last week, we told you that Benjamin Walker will walk the part of Honest Abe in Timur Bekmambetov's "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." We also told you that besides the beloved President, another juicy role in the film is the part of Henry Sturges, Lincoln's mentor who taught him how to slay vamps. Now, Deadline is saying that Joaquin Phoenix could return to acting playing the plum role!

The role was previously offered to "Inception's" Tom Hardy until the actor chose to work on Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises." Apparently, Phoenix has met with 20th Century Fox and Bekmambetov and was told that the role is his if he wants it!

Like what I said in my "Two Lovers" (Phoenix's last film before he went play-pretend bonkers) or "I'm Still Here" movie reviews, Phoenix is a great actor and he should not forget acting!

So this is great news! The role of Henry Sturges is like Lincoln's Dumbledore, or Gandalf, or Yoda! Or heck, even similar to Buffy's Giles. And we always remember the person who taught our hero everything, don't we?

Let's wait and see if Phoenix will bite into the role! He should! Oh, and have I told you how much I love the book? You should read it!
