John Cusack, a Chicago native, will appear at this year’s Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2). Cusack will participate in a Q&A session on Sunday, April 15th, and show a trailer for The Raven, his new movie from Relativity. He will also do a limited signing for 100 fans.
The Raven, an independent period thriller in which Cusack stars as Edgar Allen Poe, will be released on April 27th. It is directed by James McTiegue and tells the fictionalized account of the last days of Poe’s life, in which the poet teams up with a young Baltimore detective to hunt down a serial killer who uses Poe’s works as the basis for his murders.
“I am enormously pleased to share this news about John Cusack’s appearance at C2E2,” notes Lance Fensterman, Group Vice President for ReedPOP and Show Manager for C2E2. “I count myself as a major fan, and the fact that he is now coming to C2E2, where he will meet and greet thousands of fans, many of whom share my enthusiasm and admiration for his films, is a perfect highlight. His participation at C2E2 reinforces how great our event has become, and I know his appearance will be a huge attraction.”
C2E2 will take place April 13th-15th, 2012, in the North Building at the McCormick Place Convention Center. For further information about C2E2 and for purchasing tickets, visit the C2E2 website.
