First Look: Cussack As Poe In THE RAVEN

What better way to celebrate the 202nd birthday of writer Edgar Allan Poe than getting our first look at John Cusack as the author in the upcoming The Raven. Taken on the set of the James McTigue directed film, I have to say that the first photo certainly removes some of the skepticism that I’ve had about the casting of Cusack as Poe. Sure the resemblance isn’t perfect, but the film is a fictionalization of the last days of the writers life as he supposedly is chasing down a serial killer, I don’t think biographical accuracy is first and foremost on the production’s mind.

The Raven flies into theaters next Fall.
