Would he make a great Edgar Allan Poe? Tim Burton should direct a movie about Edgar Allan Poe and have Helen Bonham Carter portray his beloved wife Elenor.

If anyone can do fun creepy movies, Burton is the man. He could take Poe's life and turn it into an interesting montage of the man, his stories, and his life.

And, yes, I think Depp would make a great Edgar Allen Poe.

Just three questions:

Wasn't Poe's wife named Virginia? And given that she died at 24, would the now-54-year-old Helena Bonham Carter (56 by the time any move came out) be the best choice?  And given that she and Burton broke up in 2014 and haven't worked together since... wouldn't that be a little awkward?

Yes. I believe badlands may be thinking of the short story "Eleonora".

But we could always have an alternate universe Poe story, like Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (a movie I enjoyed but which fans of the graphic novel hated - but, still ...)

As for Burton and Bonham Carter's personal lives, can't a fan have fannish dreams?

LOL - in that case, I'd like to see James Whale direct Basil Rathbone and Katherine Cornell as Poe and his wife. Wink  Tongue

Don't know how Whale could do that, but the technology exists to integrate deceased actors into new films. There's the old Steve Martin Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid method of integrating clips of old movies into the storyline, and there is the Rogue One method of using CGI to impose the deceased actor's image onto a motion-capture actor's physical form.

I enjoyed the way Rogue One resurrected Peter Cushing. I'm sorry many other people did not.

Johnny Depp would also be a great Vlad the Impaler, Helen Bonham Carter would be a great Elizabeth Barthory ( blood countess). Amber Heard could be Vlad’s wife.

Maybe have Tom Hanks as Edgar Allah Poe.

Now, that Depp’s reputation has clear. Should he play the Pirates of Caribbean or something else. Maybe play John Wilkins Booth.

I'm not sure it's correct to say that Johnny Depp's reputation has been cleared. He admitted to some pretty awful behavior in court.

But he also said in court that he would never appear in the PoTC franchise again. So I think that deal is dead.

Maybe Tim Burton will direct them with Helena Bonham Carter and a cgi Peter Cushing.
