Edgar Allan Poe was a 19th century writer known for his macabre and often dark poems and short stories. The Raven is perhaps his most well known poem but the subject of the poem isn’t the focus behind the upcoming movie. In The Raven John Cusack plays Poe in a “fictionalized account of the last days of his life, in which the poet and Detective Fields (Luke Evans) are in pursuit of a serial killer whose murders mirror those in the writer’s stories”. Much like Poe’s work, The Raven appears to be dark, moody and will no doubt be suspenseful. However the film turns out, Cusack has certainly nailed the look of Poe.
The Raven hits theaters in Fall of 2011.
