ComingSoon has reported that John Cusack will play Edgar Allan Poe in ‘The Raven’ for director James McTiegue. McTiegue directed ‘V For Vendetta’. The film follows the last five days of Poe’s life before his weird death in which Poe is on the trail of a serial killer who is committing murders based on the authors books.
I am very interested in this film because of its dark and mysterious plot. Who better than Cusack to star in this type of role for a director like McTiegue. “V For Vendetta’ was wonderfully done and I can see McTiegue being able to add the perfect amount of emotion and intensity to telling this story.
What are your thoughts on this casting news? Does this sound like a movie you are looking forward to seeing?
