The Genesis of Lincoln

Directed by Richard O’Sullivan, who wrote the screenplay and will produce along with Gilberto Vera, the project is a “movie-within-a-movie,” focusing not only on the historical Lincoln tale, but also on a modern-day filmmaker’s attempt to make The Genesis of Lincoln into “an Oscar-worthy movie.” Things are further complicated when the director impregnates the teenage pop star cast to play Lincoln’s mother in the film. Does he follow in the footsteps of Lincoln’s biological father or does he take responsibility for his actions?
Principle photography will begin in early 2012.
