First shots: Edgar Allan Poe -the movie

Here are the first shots from the upcoming psychological thriller (my favorite kind) "The Raven". 
The film entails the story of the famous writer Edgar Allan Poe (1809-1849), one of the first adapters of the detective-fiction  genre, brilliant poet and master of Gothic romance. His life was also one of macabre horror stories: he married his 13-year- old cousin, suffered alcoholism and mental illness. Oh, the writers. One has to live the life to write about it? Is it old-fashioned to say that out loud?

John Cusack is playing the title role. Interesting choice. Can´t wait to see the end result, though. He took these pictures on the set, in Serbia.
