Looking for locations to shoot in ’10
McTeigue told us a little more about the general plot of the movie which looks to start production sometime next year. “There’s basically a serial killer loose in 1850’s Baltimore and he’s using Poe’s stories as his methodology, so then he leaves clues at each murder and says it’s up to Poe to find him before he kills (again).”
The director has just been in Europe looking for locations that would double for the film’s period setting. “There’s a European sensibility that could be cool. You could totally get into world creation where I can say, ‘This is my version of 1850’s Baltimore,’ because the Poe film is a fictionalized account, his last five days. It’s not real.”
Look for more on McTeigue’s take on Poe and his other projects in our full interview over on ComingSoon.net sometime before Ninja Assassin opens on November 25.
