Mortensen Up For Poe Biopic

Cinema Blend reports that Sylvester Stallone recently met with Viggo Mortensen and has offered him the role of Edgar Allan Poe in an upcoming feature.

With “Rambo” wrapped, Stallone’s next project will be helming the tale of the famed tortured poet behind such famous works as “The Raven” and “The Tell-Tale Heart.”

Mortensen is apparently consdiering the role although he wants some slight revisions in the script. Robert Downey Jr. was previously rumored to be up for this part.
