Sylvester Stallone talks Poe biopic...

Sylvester Stallone has again expressed interest, this time during a talk with Empire Online, in directing a film based on the life and times of author Edgar Allan Poe! While discussing his upcoming film The Expendables (and a possible Death Wish remake), Stallone had this to say about the project, "I keep telling my producer Avi Lerner, 'Make Edgar Allan Poe!' He says, 'Does he have a gun?' 'No, he doesn't have a gun', 'Can he throw a knife?' I say, 'No, he writes poetry!'"

While this seems like an odd pairing, Stallone's passion for Poe might just make this a film worth waiting for...
