John Cusack to play Edgar Allen Poe!

Posted on August 27, 2010 by admin | No Comments

According to Mr. Cusack himself, he will be playing Edgar Allen Poe in an upcoming flick called The Raven. He doesn’t explicity say that The Raven he will be in is the one James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) has been ramping up for some time now… but it’s a safe assumption.

If it is The Raven we think it is, the flick will be a fictional account of a serial killer in 1850′s Baltimore that uses Poe’s stories as his murder methodology. The killer then taunts Poe to figure out his clues before he kills again.

Cusack is rad. Let’s hope he can go dark enough… and grow some creepy Poe-ish hair… to nail this. He was great in 1408 and Identity… I have faith I suppose. THANK GOD it’s not Johnny Depp.
