The Raven

For any of you John Cusack fans who are having a little withdrawal from not seeing him on the big screen, fear not... as he is about to return.

The actor is set to tackle the role of Edgar Allan Poe in the thriller The Raven.

The movie is directed by James mcTeigue, the bloke behind V for Vendetta, and Cusack joins forces with Luke Evans, Alice Eve and Brendan Gleeson.

And we have the latest trailer for the movie for you to feast your eyes upon:

When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper - part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe.

Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks.

But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.

The Raven is released 9the March.
