Sylvester Stallone will write and direct a film biography of poet Edgar Allen Poe. That's right: Stallone on Poe. Despite the fact that Sly has Staying Alive on his directorial resume, the once and future Rocky Balboa is being allowed back behind the camera for his take on the Romanticist. My favorite part of this story is actually that Stallone wrote the movie as well. Does this mean Poe will get involved in championship arm-wrestling? Will he have to save a mountain-climber from John Lithgow? The plot possibilities are literally endless. Let's just hope he doesn't wind up singing with Dolly Parton.
