At the age of 86, having directed 55 feature films and produced a whopping 385, Roger Corman is a bona fide filmmaking legend.  Corman is best known for his work on low-budget B movies, making a name for himself on genre fare that generated a strong cult following.  One of Corman’s most notable achievements was a series of eight adaptations of Edgar Allen Poe stories that were released between 1959 and 1964, most of which starred Vincent Price. Now Corman is keen on revisiting that period of his career, as he’s set to remake all eight films for a whole new generation of horror fans.  Hit the jump for more details. Per THR, Roger Corman will produce low-budget remakes of eight Edgar Allen Poe stories: House of Usher, The Pit and the Pendulum, Premature Burial, Tales of Terror, The Raven, The Hunted Palace, The Masque of Red Death, and The Tomb of Ligeia. »
