John Cusack To Star In A New Movie, "The Raven"

John Cusack will play a "fictionalized" Edgar Allen Poe in his last days.
As the story goes. Poe will be working with a detective to catch a serial killer. The catch is, the killer is not alone. The killer has the detective's fiancee in tow during the killings.

I know what your thinking.  Is this Poe's "The Raven"?  Nope, it isn't. The tie-in to The Raven is that the serial killer uses Poe's stories towards the killings. So he's is leaving behind obvious clues. That only Poe can figure out and evidently catch him before he strikes again.
To me this is too similar to the recent "Sherlock Holmes" movie with Robert Downey Jr. I would have rather seen a re-make of The Raven (I like Vincent Price on his re-make. So funny!). Or seen a movie based on the "real" last days of Poe's life.

* Have a "Happy & Safe" Labor Day! See you guys tomorrow!
