Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven" Movie is Like "Se7en"?

Director James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Ninja Assassin) sat down with Sci-Fi Wire to talk about his next film, "The Raven," which is a fictional story about what would happen if a serial killer challenged poet Edgar Allan Poe to solve a series of killings inspired by his own stories.

McTeigue named some of the classic Poe tales that will inspire some of the film's gruesome murders: "The Raven," "Tell-Tale Heart," "Premature Burial," "Murders in the Rue Morgue," and "The Cask of Amontillado."

"It's sort of 'Se7en' meets a series of Poe stories. It's set in 1850s Baltimore, and it's about creating Poe's version of 1850s Baltimore, him moving through it. So it has a lot of the Poe stories interwoven into it," said McTeigue, adding that Poe's real life will be used in the film as well.

Regarding casting, the director is looking for actors to play a 40-year-old Poe, but George Clooney and Brad Pitt need not apply. "No, I don't think they'd be the right choice," McTeigue said. "Clooney and Pitt, they're good actors, but in my vision of it, they're not the people I'm thinking of."

"The Raven" should begin shooting next year. "I've already done some initial location scouting," he said. "I'm in the middle of casting, and hopefully it'll get going by about mid-March."


Sounds like an original idea.
I hope it translates well into film.

This sounds like fun. I wonder who he'll finally cast as Poe.

Sounds like a good idea. They better cast someone hot.
