Mary Elizabeth Winstead has described her next movie Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter as an "insane and wonderful" project.

Mary Elizabeth, who stars in new horror movie The Thing, will play Lincoln's wife in the movie adaptation of the novel of the same name.

The 26-year-old explained: "It's basically the story of Abraham Lincoln, his entire life story leading up to the assassination, and it's told really in a historically accurate way, except they weave this sort of b-storyline through that's completely fictional and wild and fun."

Mary Elizabeth stars alongside Rufus Sewell, Dominic Cooper and Benjamin Walker in the film, which is being produced by Tim Burton.

"It's insane and wonderful, I'm so excited about it and it was so much fun to film," she said.

The Scott Pilgrim Vs The World star also admitted she would jump at the chance to team up with Edgar Wright again.

The 26-year-old actress played Michael Cera's love interest Ramona Flowers in the Shaun Of The Dead director's last project.

She said of the British director: "I would love to work with Edgar again, he's brilliant, I think he's one of the most brilliant directors we have working right now.

"I would go on and do one line, you know, I would do it."

In The Thing, Mary Elizabeth plays a scientist battling alongside Joel Edgerton to escape from a mysterious creature unearthed in the Antarctic.
