Inneresting casting choice!
John Cusack has announced via Twitter that he has signed on to play iconic horror writer Edgar Allen Poe in The Raven!
The film, directed by James McTeigue, will reportedly be a fictionalized account of the author during his last days alive as he hunts down a serial killer who uses his stories as inspiration for his murders!
officiali- will play edgar allen poe in fall-a-film called the raven, send any poe- gold - my way as i begin this journey into the abyss
The abyss is right! That dude was seriously fuuuucked up!
We imagine Cusack will be good at the mumbling, socially anxious part of the character, but we're not sure we can see him that twisted!
What do U think?? Will Cusack do a good job as Poe??
