Whoops! Mary Elizabeth Winstead Is Mrs. "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter"

Winner: Mary Elizabeth Winstead. For reasons we still don’t understand, everyone ignored Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. So take our word for it: Winstead was great. You can look forward to ignoring our recommendation you see her next year in The Thing.

Like a herd of lemmings, the Internets ran off a cliff to tell you that Robin McLeavy had been cast alongside Benjamin Walker for "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter." Nope.

It's Mary Elizabeth Winstead instead who's been cast as Mary Todd, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It's been a tough year for Winstead, who was poised for global super-stardom before "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World" was inexplicably ignored last summer by audiences and "The Thing" got pushed at least six months for reshoots. 

"Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter," being directed by Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted"), stars Walker as Lincoln, Dominic Cooper as his mentor Henry Sturges and Anthony Mackie. Tim Burton, who bought the rights to the book by Seth Graham Smith's after seeing the trailer, is producing.

We feel badly for McLeavy, but, hey, more Liz Winstead.
