Jim Lemley are producing. Pic, which opens June 22, 2012, revolves around the notion that vampires were the source of the conflict in the Civil War, and that after his mother’s death, Honest Abe set out on a quest to rid the world of the undead. Production is set to begin soon in Louisiana. The studio is still in the hunt for a thesp to play Mary Todd, among other roles. Cooper has generated some heat for his role in Lionsgate drama “The Devil’s Double,” which screened at Sundance. Besides “Devil,” he can also be seen in the upcoming “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “My Week With Marilyn.” Cooper is repped by CAA and Markham, Froggatt and Irwin.
