James McTeigue's 'The Raven' has sadly dropped down the release schedule. Expecting a theatrical opening from 9 March the Relativity production has been bumped back to the following month and will now open from 27 April 2012. The fictionalised tale based upon Edgar Allen Poe stars John Cusack ('1408') as Poe and along for the ride with Cusack is one of my top hotties, British star Alice Eve -below ('ATM'). The couple are joined by Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Dave Legeno, Kevin McNally and Pam Ferris. For those long plot lovers out there you can feast on a whole 3 paragraphs of description below!
"In this gritty thriller, Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack, Being John Malkovich) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans, Immortals) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), the film also stars Alice Eve (Sex and the City 2), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster).
When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper—part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story.
Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late."
