Director James McTeigue talked with /Film about his next film The Raven, in which he likened the fictional tale to Se7en, placing the author Edgar Allan Poe at the head of a serial killer investigation.

The V For Vendetta director said the project is an "account of the final five 'mysterious' days of Edgar Allan Poe's life. Apparently the famous writer joins the hunt for a serial killer whose murders are inspired by his stories."

The screenplay is written by Hannah Shakespeare and Ben Livingston.

No production date has been set.
