Joaquin Phoenix's rap career has been put on hold - he will return to the big screen as EDGAR ALLEN POE, according to Oscar-winning sound engineer RESUL POOKUTTY.
The Walk The Line actor quit Hollywood last year (09), announcing plans to focus on becoming a hip-hop star.
He disappeared from the spotlight, only emerging for a string of bizarre TV interviews, which saw him sporting a scraggly beard and giving one-word replies to questions, and a couple of disastrous gigs.
However, Slumdog Millionaire sound designer Pookutty has revealed Phoenix is heading back to acting to play iconic American writer and poet Poe.
Pookutty tells India's Mumbai Mirror, "I couldn't be happier because I am doing a period film. It is a very special challenge because I have to recreate the sound textures of New York in 1854.
"It's an adaptation of The Beautiful Cigar Girl by Daniel Stashower and based on an eerie real-life experience of author Edgar Allan Poe which happened just months before his death. Joaquin plays Edgar Allen Poe."

Not a good sign that the sound designer is talking about the challenges of the sound textures of 1854 New York - considering Poe died in 1849 in Baltimore. I question the credibility of the original article - There were a number of books in the 19th century about the murder and Poe, many of them titled "The Beautiful Cigar Girl". In the 1970s, two books really reopened the Mary Rogers case - one by Raymond Paul and one by Amy Srebnick. There is also a good graphic novel by Rick Geary.
