Joaquin Phoenix to Play Edgar Allan Poe in "The Beautiful Cigar Girl"

Joaquin Phoenix to Play Edgar Allan Poe in "The Beautiful Cigar Girl"Submit Comment
Even though Joaquin Phoenix claims that he has quit Hollywood to focus on his rap career, I'm not sure many believe that, especially since Casey Affleck has been documenting the entire thing.

Now, India Times is reporting that Phoenix is set to play poet Edgar Allen Poe in a big screen adaptation of Daniel Stashower's "The Beautiful Cigar Girl," which revolves around an eerie re-life experience of Poe just months before his death.

The news comes from sound recording artist Resul Pookutty, who won an Oscar for his work on "Slumdog Millionaire." "Cigar Girl" will be his second international film. "I couldn't be happier because I am doing a period film," he said. "It is a very special challenge because I have to recreate the sound textures of New York in 1854. Joaquin plays Edgar Allen Poe."

Did Joaquin even have a sweet ass rapper name!? J-Phoenix, J-Peezy, Lil J, Master Phoenix, Bird Nest Beard Face? I am a sick sad individual who looks gift horses in their whack ass mouf's? That wouldn't fit across the top of a CD...

Waiiiiiit....

They've messed up the title! It must be like that:

"Beautiful Cigar, girls!" or "'Beautiful cigar!' - girl"

Joaquin Phenis in "Beautiful cigar, girls!"

I question the credibility of this article. The sound designer is talking about the challenges of the sound textures of 1854 New York, but Poe died in 1849 in Baltimore. There were a number of books in the 19th century about the murder and Poe, many of them titled "The Beautiful Cigar Girl". I doubt that if there is a script it was based on Daniel Stashower's book because earlier researchers (Raymond Paul and Amy Srebnick) are given much more credibility in the field. Joaquin Phoenix has denied that he'll be playing this role. Might want to check into this rumor more carefully.
