This might be worth watching, I like the fictional idea but hopefully there won't be too many inaccuracies with Poe's life.

His eyes look wicked in this picture. I can't wait to see this. Always liked the Edgar Allen Poe stuff anyway. I'm sure this will be worth going to see.

I think Cusack was the perfect choice for Poe. Hell, even without the period piece outfit, he just looks the part. Great casting, let's hope the movie pays off though. I'd love to see a great Poe movie.
