"V for Vendetta" Helmer Takes on Edgar Allan Poe

Posted: August 5th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"V for Vendetta" Helmer Takes on Edgar Allan PoeSubmit Comment
/Film had the chance to speak to director James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin), who revealed that his next project will not be the Superman reboot, but "The Raven."

The new movie is a fictionalized account of the final five "mysterious" days of Edgar Allan Poe's life, during which the famous poet joins the hunt for a serial killer whose murders are inspired by his stories.

"It's like the poem, The Raven, itself, crossed with Se7en," he explained. "It should be pretty cool. The script is really good and everyone responds to it really well. I'm in the middle of casting."

The real death of Poe was also mysterious. The writer was discovered on the streets of Baltimore in great distress and in need of "immediate assistance." He was wearing someone else's clothes and kept repeating the name "Reynolds." He died shortly after in hospital, never able to explain what had happened.

Can't believe that Depp and Burton haven't gotten to Poe first.

Maybe David Morse for the lead? I think with the right hair and makeup he could look right for the part.

"He was wearing someone else's clothes and kept repeating the name "Reynolds.""

Maybe Poe was trying to warn us about Ryan Reynolds is gonna end up playing every f*cking superhero.

awesome! I think this could be damn good, it was only a matter of time before a film on the man was made and I think it could be great. It needs to be super dark! I recall sometime ago that Tim Burton did wanna concure this but even if this is made Burton could still make his, a cooky version, with Depp as Poe. For this though we need like... Gary Oldmen - I think he could nail it perhaps.

I wonder if this means we'll see some Edgar Allen Poe masks at the next anti-Scientology anonymous rallies
