John Cusack Will Play Edgar Allan Poe in “The Raven”

John Cusack, star of films like High Fidelity and Hot Tub Time Machine, has signed on for the lead role of Edgar Allan Poe in the movie The Raven.

The Raven is a “fictional thriller” and will follow Poe through the last five days of his life as he is forced to join forces with a detective who is looking for a serial killer who has kidnapped his fiance. During the search, the detective goes on a copycat murdering rampage to mimic the serial killer’s actions.

Shooting will begin in October in Serbia and Budapest.

There have been a lot of other big names up for and tied to this project in the past couple of years, including Joaquin Pheonix, Ewan McGregor and Jeremy Renner.

So, Celebstalkers…do you think that casting made the right choice?
