Jeremy Renner and Ewan McGregor in talks for The Raven, Battleship.

Posted on 18 February 2010 by Andrew


James McTeigue’s(V for Vendetta) next directorial effort is starting to shape up.  Jeremy Renner (Hurt Locker) and Ewan McGregor (Big Fish) are in talks to star in his upcoming film The Raven. The Raven is one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most famous stories, and the film will chronicle the final mysterious days of his life.  It also involves Poe investigating a serial killer whose murders are inspired by his stories.  The director has described it as “like the poem, but crossed with Seven.”  Hmm, this film is starting to come together nicely and if it is anywhere near as dark/interesting as Seven it could be a good film.  James McTeigue is really more of an action or comic book director so it will be some new territory for him to direct a thriller.

In other unrelated news Jeremy Renner has also been in negotiations to star in Peter Berg’s Battleship.  Yes, the one based off the Hasbro board game. And if the movie didn’t sound any crazier, the battleships will be up against…….aliens! Not making that info up either, and I am definitely interested to see a trailer for this.  Jeremy Renner has gotten quite a few projects lined up ever since his recent Oscar nomination for best actor in The Hurt Locker. He does an excellent job in that movie and I’m glad the Academy and other directors are recognizing his talent.
