James McTeigue Takes on Poe’s The Raven

Every now and again our genre sees a glimmer of hope. For every seven remakes, rip-offs, and sequels, there always pops up a project that sounds cool enough to keep an eye on. Enter James McTeigue’s take on Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven.

Recently McTeigue chatted with /Film about breathing some life into this old bird.

It’s like the poem, ‘The Raven’, itself, crossed with ‘Se7en’,” he tells the site. “It should be pretty cool. The script is really good and everyone responds to it really well. I’m in the middle of casting.”

The film will be coming courtesy of FilmNation Entertainment and Endgame and is set during the last days of Edgar Allan Poe’s life, when he gets entangled in a serial killer investigation. Hit the above link for more!
