Cusack gets gothed out in his Poe costume

Thought that John Cusack playing Edgar Allen Poe in THE RAVEN would be a bit of a stretch? Well this first shot of him in full goth regalia to play the famed poet might put your mind at ease. Or it might do the opposite, who knows. He's sporting Poe's wicked trademark facial hair, and I wonder if that's natural or fake.

THE RAVEN has been described as a "SE7EN-like" adventure where Poe tries to track down a serial killer in the days leading up to his death. Also appearing in the film are Alice Even and Luke Evans, as Poe's kidnapped girl and a helpful detective respectively, and the entire thing is being helmed by NINJA ASSASSIN and V FOR VENDETTA's James McTeigue, so expect some cool visuals at the very least.

Check out Cusack in costume below, and I'll be waiting for the first shots of Alice Eve in a corset.

Extra Tidbit: Is there really going to be choreographed high flying fight scenes in this or will McTeigue be chilling out a bit?

Cusack needs (and deserves) a comeback after being in so many classics (Grosse Pointe, Malkovich, Better off Dead etc.) Hopefully this is it.

He looks awesome. I just hope there's not crazy unrealistic action scenes-- I absolutely love Poe, he's one of my favorite writers, but I just can't see him as a bad motherfucker, ass kicking superhero.

First I've heard about this, but

I've always been a Cusack fan from Hoops in One Crazy Summer to where he's "off saving the rain forest or recycling his sandles or some shit"...this looks like it's gonna be pretty cool.

Without a doubt looks the part. I think this movie will be a cross of Sherlock Holmes and Seven. Movie's gonna be good and Cusack is gonna get his Poe on.

I don't really care much for the movie, I'm just glad someone thought of Cusack for the part. With all the different Poe projects that have made the rounds in recent years, he just makes the most sense of all the actors considered (although RDJ wouldn't be terrible).

When I think of Se7en still serial killer I get excited, but then I think how this will probably be Pg-13 :(
