New photo of John Cusack in The Raven
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
So below is the first official photo released by studios of THE RAVEN starring John Cusack, and I have to admit that I’m a little unimpressed by the lack of originality. Seriously?! John Cusack playing Edgar Allan Poe and you pose him with a raven on his arm, that’s just lame. However, if you are a Cusack fan or and Edgar Allan Poe fan (of which I’m neither) then you will probably dig this photo. THE RAVEN is a psychological thriller about a serial killer who is using Poe’s literary works as the basis for his killings and Poe has to get involved because his wife has been kidnapped by the killer. The film will be directed by John McTeigue and will come out in theaters sometime late next year.
Even though I’m not the biggest Cusack fan, I think THE RAVEN has some potential because the concept is great. What’s going to blow it is if the execution is poor and they start adding in supernatural elements or something else crazy.
