Once upon a midnight dreary…
While John Cusack wandered, weak and weary!
Check out the new TV spot for The Raven starring Mr.Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe.
The film follows the poet of darkness as he tries to solve a series of murders inspired by his own prose.
This is NOT a biopic. THIS NEVER HAPPENED. But if it did, perhaps it would have gone something like this.
The film is directed by V for Vendetta's James McTeigue and is set to release in the US on 27 April 2012
Are U excited for The Raven??

We knew it was too good to be true!
Walk the Line actor turned bearded rapper/performance artist/whatever the eff that was last spring Joaquin Phoenix will not be coming out of retirement to play Edgar Allen Poe!
Last week, Resul Pookutty, who was responsible for the sound design in Slumdog Millionaire, told an Indian newspaper that Phoenix has signed on to play the poet in a new movie, but the rumor has been squashed by Joaquin's rep!
Phoenix's rep says that his client has no intentions of appearing in the new flick.
We'd love to see Joaquin return to the big screen!

Inspired casting choice, if it's true!
Joaquin Phoenix is reportedly returning to the silver screen as Edgar Allan Poe after not having acted for quite some time sporting his nasty facial hair and giving bizarre interviews!
Slumdog Millionaire sound designer Pookutty revealed to an Indian newspaper:
"I couldn't be happier because I am doing a period film. It is a very special challenge because I have to recreate the sound textures of New York in 1854.
"It's an adaptation of The Beautiful Cigar Girl by Daniel Stashower and based on an eerie real-life experience of author Edgar Allan Poe which happened just months before his death. Joaquin plays Edgar Allen Poe."
He's a talented actor — we'll be interested to see if Joaquin confirms the news!
