In the past, Sylvester Stallone has expressed interest in writing and directing a biopic film about famous writer, Edgar Allan Poe. Sly used to talk about his “Poe” movie through interviews but he hasn’t been talking about it lately. So for those wondering on whether or not he’s still working on it can stop wondering ’cause he’s still working on it even to this day. Sly’s “Poe” script has gotten many re-writes as you can see and he spent many years researching the project.
So yeah, Sly hasn’t bailed on his “Poe” movie and it’s still gonna happen but when? Hopefully pretty soon ’cause this is a project of Sly’s that I’m most interested in. Will Sly star as Edgar Allan Poe? No, probably not. I remember Sly saying in the past that he won’t play Poe due to his age. I believe a younger actor will probably end up playing Poe. Sly will probably just write and direct the film.
Hopefully the “Poe” movie will soon get the green light so it can start filming either in 2019 this year or next year in 2020. Did Sly post this video ’cause he’s teasing us that this film will finally move forward into production? Hopefully. We’ll have to wait and see.
I’m glad Sly is taking his slow time on the film, though. It’s good to take your time and not rush.
