We’re getting our first look at actor John Cusack playing 19th century gothic literature giant Edgar Allan Poe in a new murder mystery inspired by the writer’s famed poem The Raven.

Cusack will step in front of the camera for a fictionalized account of Poe’s mysterious last days chasing a serial killer.

The period thriller — directed by James McTeigue – hits theaters next year.
