First Look at John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe on The Raven Set

The Interwebs have your first look at John Cusack on the set of his period thriller “The Raven”, all dressed up as Edgar Allan Poe with nowhere to go. Except, uh, to the movie set and shooting the movie, that is.

Starring Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, and directed by James McTeigue, “The Raven” is a fictionalized account of the last days of Edgar Allan Poe’s life, in which the poet chases a serial killer whose murders mirror those of the depressed author’s stories.

The film is currently shooting on location in Budapest, Hungary, which is standing in for 19th century Baltimore.
