What Does Sylvester Stallone Have to do With Edgar Allen Poe?

We would never in a million years make a connection between American author Edgar Allen Poe and American actor Sylvester Stallone, but that was before we knew about Sly’s passion project.

Turns out, one of the first scripts Stallone ever wrote as a biopic about Poe, and he’s itching to make it.

“This is when I got really serious about writing,” Stallone says in this video posted to his Instagram.

“It’s a never-ending journey, and I would hate myself if I don’t continue it at least to the best of my ability and try to see it, actually, come to fruition. To be able to go out there and say, ‘I accomplished it. It may have taken 45 years/50 years, but it’s done.’ Anyway. That’s what I’m working on. It’s been one of the great challenges of my life.”

It’s a long road to reach your goals but it’s definitely worth the journey…

We REALLY want to see this project happen, here’s hoping.

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.



Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 



Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 



Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
