Brit actor Tom Hardy is certainly becoming a bit of an A-lister. Only feels like 5 minutes ago we were enjoying his gangster-esque performances in the likes of 'Layer Cake', 'RocknRolla' and 'Bronson'. But now he's popping up all over the place...Christopher Nolan's 'Inception', the new 'Mad Max' flick 'Mad Max Fury Road' - alongside Charlize Theron and even looks to have a part locked in the new Batman flick 'The Dark Knight Rises'! But the latest news stateside is that Hardy is to take a part in Russian director  Timur Bekmambeto's ('Night Watch: Nochnoi Dozor', 'Wanted') latest adaption 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter'.

The story, to be adapted from the novel of the same name by author Seth Grahame-Smith ('Pride and Prejudice and Zombies'). He'll also also pen the screenplay!

Here's a synopsis of the book itself...

"Indiana, 1818. Moonlight falls through the dense woods that surround a one-room cabin, where a nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln kneels at his suffering mother s bedside. She s been stricken with something the old-timers call 'Milk Sickness'. 'My baby boy...' she whispers before dying. Only later will the grieving Abe learn that his mother's fatal affliction was actually the work of a vampire. When the truth becomes known to young Lincoln, he writes in his journal, 'henceforth my life shall be one of rigorous study and devotion. I shall become a master of mind and body. And this mastery shall have but one purpose...' Gifted with his legendary height, strength, and skill with an axe, Abe sets out on a path of vengeance that will lead him all the way to the White House. While Abraham Lincoln is widely lauded for saving a Union and freeing millions of slaves, his valiant fight against the forces of the undead has remained in the shadows for hundreds of years. That is, until Seth Grahame-Smith stumbled upon The Secret Journal of Abraham Lincoln, and became the first living person to lay eyes on it in more than 140 years. Using the journal as his guide and writing in the grand biographical style of Doris Kearns Goodwin and David McCullough, Seth has reconstructed the true life story of America's greatest president for the first time - all while revealing the hidden history behind the Civil War and uncovering the role vampires played in the birth, growth, and near-death of the nation."

Tim Burton will be producing the action flick which is set to hit US theatres on 22 June 2012.
