J. Cusack Is E. A. Poe
I was introduced to Edgar Allen Poe when I was in 4th grade. Even though I was young I enjoyed his dark poetry. Now as an adult I can enjoy Poe in movie form.
JOHN CUSACK plays EDGAR ALLAN POE in the upcoming film “The Raven” . . . and a picture of him in costume hit the web yesterday.
–This is NOT a straight biopic. It’s actually a FICTIONAL account of Poe’s last days . . . in which he’s chasing down a serial killer who patterns his murders after Poe’s stories.
I’m thinking The Raven will be like Sherlock Holmes but with Edgar Allen Poe. I guess we’ll find out when it’s released. It is tentatively scheduled for release in 2011.
