JOAQUIN PHOENIX AS EDGAR ALLAN POE IN "THE BEAUTIFUL CIGAR GIRL"

Although he informed us all how he's retiring from Hollywood, before he started acting all weird and crazy in interviews and shows, Joaquin Phoenix is coming back to cinemas. He will return to the big screen in an adaptation of Daniel Stashower's book "The Beautiful Cigar Girl". Phoenix is going to play Edgar Allan Poe in this movie which is based on an eerie real-life experience the author had just months before his death. The script is based on a true story that follows Poe's investigation in solving the mystery behind the brutal death of a beautiful society girl.

  5. I interned at a production company in LA and remember doing coverage on a script for The Beautiful Cigar Girl written by Steven Katz (Shadow of the Vampire) with revisions by Stephen Jeffreys (The Libertine). It was an interesting script. Katz kind of brought that same historical fiction/horror style to the script. I wondered what had happened to it. Didn’t see Daniel Stashower on the script cover page though. Might not be based on that book...

  9. da, da, Perine, Po je cesto vrlo drag and omiljen psiholozima :) Preporucujem ti posebno, sa tog psiholoskog aspekta, njegovu pricu THE CASK OF AMONTILADO.
    Mada, moram da priznam da ja preferiram oca psihologije - Dostojevskog :PP
