Edgar Allan Poe. So good you remake them twice. Roger Corman made Edgar Allan Poe movie adaptations way back in the 50s and 60s, with Vincent Price starring in many of them. It’s 2012, going on 2013, and that means it’s time. Time for Corman to go back to Poe, with all-new adaptations of the classic material.
And with Corman, of course, that means not just one, but a bundle. HOUSE OF USHER, THE PIT AND THE PENDULUM, PREMATURE BURIAL, TALES OF TERROR, THE RAVEN, THE HAUNTED PALACE, THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH, and THE TOM OF LIGEIA are all on the remake slate. Here’s what Corman had to say: “Now being able to do them in 3D and with a lot of computer graphics, we can do things we never dreamed of doing before.“
Expect the budgets to be around $2.5-$3 million, or way more than the originals. Don’t expect Vincent Price…sadly.
