Fox and director Timur Bekmambetov are making headway in the casting of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘s supporting cast, albeit by taking two strides forward after one step back.

Joaquin Phoenix had been negotiating to play Henry, a “mysterious ageless guy who teaches Abe to kill bloodsuckers,” but has apparently dropped out of the running. The top candidate now is Dominic Cooper, the Mamma Mia fiance who recently received plaudits at Sundance for his dual role as Saddam Hussein’s son and his decoy in The Devil’s Double.

Anthony Mackie is being courted for the role of Will, friend to the president and a man who, Deadline say, will get to see a lot of vamp-slaying action.

Both actors are bound to receive a good boost to their profiles from roles in this picture. All signs are that Fox seem set to push it super, super hard. I hope it lives up to their expectations.
