“Inglourious Basterds” star Diane Kruger to play in Abraham Lincoln bio

PanARMENIAN.Net - The 16th U.S. president continues to a hot box office commodity. The next film about Abraham Lincoln is The Green Blade Rises, and Diane Kruger has been set to play Sarah Lincoln, Abe’s beautiful stepmother, Deadline said.

The film was written and will be directed by AJ Edwards, with Terrence Malick producing with Nicolas Gonda and Charley Beil. This version tells the story of America’s greatest hero, the hardships that shaped him, the tragedy that marked him forever and the two women who guided him to immortality. One is his stepmother, who becomes an influential figure for the future president.

The film is being shot in black and white and will begin production in the fall. It spans three formative years of his life in the vast wilderness of Indiana. And no, there will be no vampires. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has already hit theaters, and Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln will be released November 9, with Daniel Day-Lewis playing the Great Emancipator. Kruger is repped by UTA, Untitled and UK-based Ken McReddie Associates.
