Yup you’re hearing right, Rocky Balboa himself Sylvester Stallone has always wanted to make a movie about Edgar Allan Poe. Some of you are probably thinking that would probably never work right? We’re used to the likes of Rocky and Rambo among many of his other actions movies.
Edgar Allan Poe wasn’t know for wielding weapons, or his fighting skills, he was known for his stories. So how would a movie about Edgar Allan Poe be told by Sylvester Stallone?
Apparently this is something that he has wanted to do for a very long time, about 50 years to be exact. At one time he even got the costume for the role, but he knew he wasn’t good for the part. It never made it past an idea, but he hasn’t given up.
Early last year he told Men’s Health he had numerous screenplays for the idea. He said even his producer didn’t take him very serious when he mentioned it. So the real question we all probably still have on our minds is…
Could it work?
We saw what Sly did with Rocky and many other movies. I honestly think he could make it work in a way that it would eventually become a classic. Call me crazy, but I think it would really work if he was given the opportunity. Let’s just hope it happens within the next few years, what do you think?
