After flopping on the small screen with The Contender, Sylvester Stallone is going back to making movies. According to Variety, the auteur will write and direct a film about legendary spooky poet Edgar Allan Poe. Robert Downey Jr. is said to be Sly's first choice to play the title role. His second choice: the Crypt Keeper from Tales from the Crypt. Speaking of horror shows, did you catch Tom Cruise promoting My Romance with Katie Holmes on Monday's Oprah?
