Relativity Medias has acquired the marketing and distribution rights for director James McTeigue’s new movie, ‘The Raven,’ the studio announced via a press release. The movie was produced by Intrepid Pictures, and stars John Cusack, Luke Evans, Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

‘The Raven’ is a fictionalized story of the end of Edgar Allan Poe’s life, as he trails a serial killer who copies killings detailed in his work. The movie began shooting in Hungary in November before it moved to Serbia last month. Production wrapped earlier this month.

‘Bruce Almighty’ writer Ben Livingston and ‘Loverboy’ author Hannah Shakespeare penned ‘The Raven,’ which is being produced by Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans. The two producers released a joint statement, saying they’re excited to be working Relativity on the movie. “We’re also very pleased that Relativity is committed to helping deliver this film to the widest possible audience,” they added.
