Mortensen as Stallone's Poe?
From everything that I was hearing Sylvester Stallone was getting ready to move forward with his Death Wish remake, but there's a rumour going around that the next film he tackles will be his Edgar Allan Poe project and he's been lining up stars to play the lead already.
First choice appears to be Viggo Mortensen.
It seems that this list goes down the acting chain quite quickly, not that Collins or Hawkes are bad actors, just that each is a step down from the previous, so I'm not too sure about that. If you had Mortensen considering wouldn't you be playing his name off other, as good or bigger actors? Who knows, and it is a rumour after all.
Still, I do trust the guys at Cinema Blend, and so if they invest in their sources then I will too, especially as I could really see Mortensen playing Poe, although I think Javier Bardem would be a much better choice.
