What’s particularly interesting about this project for horror fans is that Edgar Allan Poe is a central character in the story, and we recently learned that Harry Potter actor Harry Melling has been cast in the role of Poe. Melling, who recently appeared on “The Queen’s Gambit,” is perhaps best known for playing Dudley Dursley in the Harry Potter film franchise.
Melling’s portrayal of Poe is teased in these brand new first-look images as well.
“The film written and directed by Cooper is based on Louis Bayard’s 2006 novel of the same name—a Gothic thriller that he’s been looking to make for more than a decade. It centers on a young cadet the world would come to know as Edgar Allan Poe (Melling) and a series of murders that took place at the United States Military Academy, West Point, in 1830.”
Christian Bale is producing and playing the detective at the center of the film.
