Sylvester Stallone to Direct Movie of Antiwar Novel, Homefront?

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

Actually, Stallone was probably referring to Chuck Logan’s novel Homefront. At that point, couldn’t have been Kristen Tsetsi’s Homefront.

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.
