Edgar Allan Poe fights (or possibly commits) crime

John Cusack has apparently signed on to play Edgar Allan Poe in a (fictionalized) account of the poet's last few days of life. The description of the film on Cinematical mentions something about a serial killer who's murdering people using the methods described in Poe's books, so I'm assuming these filmmakers don't subscribe to my favorite rumor about Poe's death: that he was press-ganged into a repeat-voting scam.

Note: Hey, I would totally watch a movie about mid-19th century voting scams. I think it would make for edge-of-your-seat viewing.

Note #2: Adorable as Cusack is, I have my doubts about his ability to carry off that hairstyle.
