John Cusack is Edgar Allan Poe in "The Raven" Thriller

John Cusack is Edgar Allan Poe in "The Raven" ThrillerSubmit Comment
Director James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin) has been planning to make "The Raven" thriller his next movie, which is a fictional story about what would happen if a serial killer challenged poet Edgar Allan Poe to solve a series of killings inspired by his own stories.

Now comes word from John Cusack (2012), via his Twitter account, that he has signed on to play Poe in the movie despite being seven inches taller than the poet. We've heard that Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) and Ewan McGregor (The Island) were also in talks, but it's not clear if it was for for the role of Poe or some other one.

"It's sort of 'Se7en' meets a series of Poe stories. It's set in 1850s Baltimore, and it's about creating Poe's version of 1850s Baltimore, him moving through it. So it has a lot of the Poe stories interwoven into it," McTeigue previously stated, adding that Poe's real life will be used in the film as well.

Funny, that's the fourth movie around Poe himself that's currently at work.

Finally! A character John Cusack plays that doesn't have a sappy love interest and a goofy, good-natured sidekick!

Oh. And I can't wait to see the nude West Point scene where Poe comes out in nothing but a saber. Should be classic.

Is this the same f*cking movie Stallone wanted to write and produce ? If so, where's the automatic machine gun ?

I say Jeremy Piven should voice the Raven on the mantlepiece like Ari Gold.

" Nevermore, bitch! What the f*ck did I say ?"

Ok. He doesn't really look anything like Poe, but whatever.

@Rabid: With the right wig and makeup, I bet they can make him look enough like Poe.

I loved Cusack in Hot Tub Time Machine. I'll watch this movie.
