Inspired casting choice, if it's true!
Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly returning to the silver screen as Edgar Allan Poe after not having acted for quite some time sporting his nasty facial hair and giving bizarre interviews!
Slumdog Millionaire sound designer Pookutty revealed to an Indian newspaper:
"I couldn't be happier because I am doing a period film. It is a very special challenge because I have to recreate the sound textures of New York in 1854.
"It's an adaptation of The Beautiful Cigar Girl by Daniel Stashower and based on an eerie real-life experience of author Edgar Allan Poe which happened just months before his death. Joaquin plays Edgar Allen Poe."
He's a talented actor — we'll be interested to see if Joaquin confirms the news!
