This sounds ridiculous!
And yet we're totally intrigued!
Idris Elba, who may very well be the next James Bond, is reportedly in the midst of producing a movie which he hopes will be a trilogy!

The actor slash producer is helping develop a movie based on Marc Olden's historical thriller called Poe Must Die about the renowned author Edgar Allen Poe!
In the book, the poet wages war with an evil sorcerer seeking immortality. WTF??
This is the craziest plot we've heard since… Nope, this pretty much wins! Count us in!
Unfortunately it isn't clear whether Idris Elba will actually star in the movie, but we'd love to see Idris take some part in this flick.
He'd make a killer Edgar Allen Poe! It may not be historically accurate for him to play that role, but this movie doesn't sound like it was exactly drawn from Poe's real life, so why not change it up a little more!

We're sure Poe wouldn't mind if he was still alive.
Seems like Idris is making BIG moves these days, and we're excited to see how this latest project turns out!
