Inspired by the life and hard times of famed author EDGAR ALLEN POE, the upcoming drama THE RAVEN tells the fictional story of a killer copying the murders committed in POE’S writings. Together with a determined detective, the author is drawn into the search for the madman. Directed by JAMES McTEIGUE, the cast includes JOHN CUSACK, ALICE EVE, LUKE EVANS, BRENDAN GLEESON and KEVIN McNALLY.
As POE, actor JOHN CUSACK turns in a terrific performance as the tortured genius as he became one of the most acclaimed authors of his time yet died penniless in a hovel. At last week’s press conference to promote the film, CUSACK talked about how POE was as infamous as he was famous. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
