This week, Relativity Media released a new image of Alice Eve in the upcoming period thriller The Raven. Entourage fans will recognize Eve as the journalist, Sophia, from the series’ final season and also in She’s Out of My League. Aside from The Raven, she will also appear in the 2012 blockbuster Men In Black III. The image comes from WeAreMovieGeeks below:
The Raven is a fictionalized account of the final days of gothic writer Edgar Allan Poe as he tracks a serial killer whose crimes mirror works by the famous author. Coming from V for Vendetta director James McTeigue, starring John Cusack as Poe and Luke Evans as Baltimore Detective Emmett Fields, and featuring Brendan Gleeson, Alice Eve, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen, this is one potential-filled period thriller.
When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper – part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story.
Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.
