Early in his career, Sylvester Stallone began writing a script for a biopic about the life and career of Edgar Allan Poe, in which he actually considered playing Poe! Eventually, he realized he wasn't right for the part and all these years later, the movie, titled Poe, is still one of Stallone's dream projects.
In a recent Instagram post, he vowed to one day finish the 45 year old script.
“It’s a never-ending journey, and I would hate myself if I don’t continue it at least to the best of my ability and try to see it, actually, come to fruition. To be able to go out there and say, ‘I accomplished it. It may have taken 45 years/50 years, but it’s done.’ Anyway. That’s what I’m working on. It’s been one of the great challenges of my life.”
