Alice Eve, Luke Evans fly to “Raven” with Cusack


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Quoth “The Raven” … welcome to the cast.

Alice Eve and Luke Evans are set to join John Cusack in “The Raven,” a period thriller from “V for Vendetta” director James McTeigue that – at face value — sounds similar to Warner’s rejuvenated “Sherlock Holmes.”

According to IMDb, the follows Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack) in his final days, when a fictionalized serial killers terrorizes Baltimore using references to Poe’s own work. Eve will play Poe’s fiancé, while Evans will play a detective helping Poe track the criminal, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The article goes on to say “Raven” begins filming in October Budapest and Serbia “standing in for 1849 Baltimore.”

It sounds fun, though a period mystery with a famous figure at the lead recalls “Sherlock.” No telling if McTeigue wants to go with a jokey, popcorn tone Guy Ritchie used on “Holmes,” or if this will be a grittier take on the iconic author. We’ll find out when “The Raven” hits theaters next year.
