Roger Corman - Roger Corman Planning To Update His Poe Films

Movie legend Roger Corman is planning to update eight low-budget movies based on Edgar Allen Poe's dark tales he made in the 1950s and 1960s.

The B-movie director will produce the projects, which will begin with a new adaptation of Poe's House of Usher in 2013.

Corman tells The Hollywood Reporter, "Being able to do them in 3D with a lot of computer graphics, we can do things we never dreamed of doing before."

One big difference in the updates will be Corman's leading man - late horror icon Vincent Price starred in the original Poe films.

The filmmaker reveals he is looking to cast an actor who can offer the "sensitivity and neuroticism that Vincent was able to bring".
