Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter just making things up now, adds Rufus Sewell as "lead vampire"

Timur Bekmambetov and Tim Burton’s docudrama about the oft-glossed-over vampire-related causes of the Civil War now has its main villain: Broody dark British guy Rufus Sewell will play Adam, the archenemy to Benjamin Walker’s Lincoln, and the “lead vampire.” Of course, there is no “Adam,” vampire or otherwise, in Seth Grahame-Smith’s Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter novel, so Sewell is playing a character made up specifically for the film. So it seems this movie will be somewhat less than historically accurate.
