John Cusack won’t be the only one rocking nineteenth century facial hair. ABC has ordered the pilot “Poe.” The story would center around Edgar Allan Poe, writer by day, crime-solver by night. Using his cunning wile and unconventional methods to crack the toughest cases on the streets of 1840′s Boston.

“Kyle XY” writer Chris Hollier is in charge of scripting while casting remains in the works. I’m not sure which segment of ABC’s audience this will appeal to, the horny housewives or the gay men.

The drama, produced by Intrepid Pictures, was directed by James McTiegue, and tells of Poe’s last few days, albeit fictionalized. The film was written by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare, and also stars Luke Evans, Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans at Intrepid produced the film, with no clear release date yet. In the film, Poe tries to tracks down a serial killer inspired by Poe’s dark writing. Talk about revisionist history! What’s next, a movie about Abe Lincol fighting vampires? Oh…
