John Cusack ('1408', 'Identity') has popped up once again donning his well groomed goatee as he playes Edgar Allen Poe in James McTeigue's 'The Raven'. Bad Taste revealed a stack of new stills from the feature which include new peeks at Cusack and co-stars Luke Evans, Brendan Gleeson ('In Bruges') and the sexy Alice Eve ('ATM'). Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Dave Legeno, Kevin McNally and Pam Ferris all co-star in the movie which is due for release this April following a push back earlier this year. Check out the new stills below and make sure you head over to the Bad Taste link below for the rest!
"In this gritty thriller, Edgar Allan Poe joins forces with a young Baltimore detective to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. 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."
'The Raven' opens in theatres from 27 April.
