Relativity has released promo stills from its upcoming Edgar Allan Poe based thriller The Raven. Among them is a first look at British stunner Alice Eve in her Victorian costume. The 29-year-old plays Poe’s wife Virginia Clemm-Poe.
Set in 1849 Baltimore, The Raven follows author Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack) as he attempts to rescue his wife (Eve) from a serial killer who is tailoring his murders to match the deaths found in the novelist’s most popular books. The film, directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), arrives in theaters on March 9, 2012.
Eve will next be seen in director Barry Sonnenfeld’s Men in Black 3-D, in which she plays MIB head Olivia circa 1960, and in director David Brooks’ serial killer frightener ATM. She had been set to star in 20th Century Fox’s recent superhero flick X-Men: First Class, but lost the part to “Mad Men’s” January Jones.
