It’s not an April Fool’s joke, not quite. But a mixup of titles at Romancing the Tome:
SYLVESTER STALLONE: I’m gonna direct “Edgar Allen Poe” [without] being in it. “Yo, Poe!” doesn’t work. I’d like to direct some nice young actor in it who can get the soul of Poe. It’s a dark story, but the challenge is how to make it enjoyable, so it isn’t that depressing. And then there’s a book I’ve been looking at for a while called Homefront, which is pretty good….
(I’m thinking “Homefront” may be the book by Tony Christini about the Iraq war, f.y.i.) — Amy
Stallone would be good in Homefront as the father, or as U.S. Senator Sam Washburn. He would be better in Glory, as Jim Fielder.
