THE LORD OF THE RINGS star VIGGO MORTENSEN is set to replace ROBERT DOWNEY JR.
in SYLVESTER STALLONE’s new movie about horror author EDGAR ALLAN POE, according to internet reports.
The movie, which Stallone will direct, has been a pet project for the Rocky star for years – and now it looks like it will hit the big screen after a series of false starts.
A source tells news website CinemaBlend.com, “Stallone has recently met with Viggo Mortensen and has offered him the role of Edgar Allan Poe in the film.
“Mortensen is considering the role although he wants some slight revisions in the script.”
Alright you guys know I have a Viggo obsession. 🙂 Viggo as Poe?! I mean come on that’s at least 9 kinds of awesome! 🙂
