The Raven Gets a Release Date ... but Loses Title

The Raven (2012)

We haven't heard much recently about the film The Raven -- a fictionalized account of the last days of Edgar Allan Poe's life, in which the poet is in pursuit of a killer whose murders mirror those in the writer's stories -- but today we're learning that the film has an official release date (March 9th, 2012) and that it will get a new title.

The Untitled Raven Project stars John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe, who teams up with police detective Emmett Fields (played by Luke Evans) to find the serial killer. The screenplay is written by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare.

  1. I'm not surprised. How many movies, books, and plays about Poe have already been called "The Raven?" Millions, I'd wager.
