John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe: Exclusive on-set snapshots from The Raven

[ UPDATE: I have removed the wonderful snapshots that previously appeared in this post, at the request of the movie studio involved. I hope to sort things out with the parties involved and re-publish them again. XJ ]

As noted earlier here on Boing Boing, guestblogger and pal John Cusack is starring as Edgar Allan Poe in the James McTeigue-directed film The Raven, due out in Fall, 2011. Here's a photo gallery of on-set snapshots just shared with us by Cusack, who looks impossibly bad-ass as Poe in these shots. I am so psyched to see this film. Happy birthday, Edgar Allan Poe.
