James McTeigue has started principal photography for The Raven, which finds Edgar Allan Poe teaming up with a detective to search for a serial killer who has kidnapped the author’s fiancee and has gone on a murder spree that mimics the author’s work.

Cusack was taking a stroll on set when a photographer snapped off the shot below. Cusack co-stars with Luke Evans and Alice Eve. McTeigue previously directed V For Vendetta.
