ON

Set to direct The Raven

“The Raven” meets Se7en.

That’s how director James McTeigue is describing his next film The Raven, a fictional tale that places author Edgar Allan Poe at the head of a serial killer investigation. The V for Vendetta and Ninja Assassin helmer tells /Film that the title of the project is, in fact, called The Raven and is an “account of the final five “mysterious” days of Edgar Allan Poe’s life. Apparently the famous writer joins the hunt for a serial killer whose murders are inspired by his stories.”

The script is by Hannah Shakespeare and Ben Livingston. For more click on the source link above!
