/Film is reporting casting is underway for The Raven, a fictional account of the last five days of Edgar Allan Poe's life. The storyline reportedly includes the writer taking part in the hunt for a serial killer whose murders have been inspired by Poe's stories. The film is being directed by James McTeigue (Ninja Assassin).
"It's like the poem, The Raven, itself, crossed with Se7en," said McTeigue. "It should be pretty cool. The script is really good and everyone responds to it really well."
The screenplay is written by Hannah Shakespeare and Ben Livingston.
