In 2015, Seth Grahame-Smith is basically planning to rebuild your childhood.
The Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies author is also a screenwriter, producer, and soon-to-be director whose slate of projects reads like a list of dream properties for anyone who grew up in the ’80s or ’90s (and still is a kid at heart).
It’s also terrifying for him, since he tends to think the same thing fans are: Don’t screw these up.
A Beetlejuice sequel, a Ray Bradbury remake, a handful of Stephen King projects, and a pair of LEGO movies are just a few of the projects Grahame-Smith has in the works. When EW sat down to talk with him about his latest novel, The Last American Vampire, we also picked his brain for status updates on his film and TV work.
