Relativity Media has provided us with a first official look at John Cusack as Edgar Allen Poe in The Raven, coming to theaters on March 9, 2012.
In the gritty thriller, Edgar Allen Poe joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. Directed by James McTeigue (V For Vendetta), the film also stars Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
At the San Diego Comic-Con, The Raven will have a panel in Hall H on Friday, July 22 at 11:30am. Cusack, Evans, Eve and McTeigue are expected to be present.
