Luke Evans And Alice Eve To Join Cast Of The Raven
Luke Evans (Tamara Drewe) and Alice Eve (She’s Out of My League) are in negotiation to join John Cusack in the thriller THE RAVEN. Cusak is author Edgar Allan Poe who is attempting to find his kidnapped fiancé (Eve) from a serial killer… And the killer just happens to be on a murdering spree that mimics Poe’s work.
Initially cast in the role of the police detective assigned to Poe’s case was Jeremy Renner, but Renner bowed out in late August to film Mission: Impossible 4. Luke Evans will step into this vacated role.
Evans has been busy this year, having shot Immortals during the summer and is currently wrapping The Three Musketeers, Paul W.S. Anderson’s adaptation of the classic novel.
Alice Eve recently completed The Decoy Bride, and is currently shooting ATM, a thriller from Gold Circle Films.
Directed by James McTeigue, filming for The Raven will take place in Budapest and Serbia which will stand in for 1849 Baltimore. Filming is set to begin on October 25th.
