New Look At John Cusack As An Intense Edgar Allan Poe In 'The Raven'

Oh man, Lloyd Dobler is pissed….

EW has unveiled a new look at John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe in the forthcoming “The Raven.” A blend of (some) fact and (mostly) fiction, the film directed by The Wachowskis’ pal James McTeigue (”V For Vendetta,” “Ninja Assassin”), stars Cusack as the famed writer, in a serial killer thriller which features Poe teaming up with a detective (Brendan Gleeson) to track down a murderer who mimics his work, in the last week of the writer’s life. In addition to ripping his books for ideas on how to kill people, the murderer will also kidnap Cusack’s fiance played by Alice Eve. Looks like Lloyd will have to do more than show up with a copy of Peter Gabriel‘s “In Your Eyes” and a boombox to get her back.

“The Raven” will hit theaters on March 9th, but could it show up at Comic-Con next month? We’d say there’s a pretty good chance.
