The trailer for John Cusack’s The Raven is so Raven, the only way the film could be more Raven is if Raven-Symoné was cast as Poe. And why wasn’t she? The Disney star probably would have been a better pick to play the famous mystery author, considering Cusack seems to be on Bearded Autopilot for most of the trailer.
Set to be released March 9 of next year, the film revolves around Edgar Allen as he works with Baltimore authorities to solve a string of serial killings that seem to be based around his gruesome fictional stories, in addition to romancing a beautiful blond played by Alice Eve. Granted we’ve only seen a few minutes of the film, but part of us thinks they might as well as have cast Nic Cage in the lead role. Oh, now that would have been Raven.
