Saw Fincher's Girl With The Dragon Tattoo yesterday. Very good remake, with just enough changes to keep it fresh without altering the story. For reasons which have nothing to do with Daniel Craig, I'd quite like to see Fincher do a Bond movie now.
I remember about a decade or so ago, Tom Cruise's production company Cruise/Wagner was trying to develop Poe's novella THE NARRATIVE OF A. GORDON PYM. I think John Logan (Gladiator, Hugo, many other big movies) even wrote a draft of the screenplay, but it never got far.
Lovecraft called AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS an unofficial sequel to PYM (Jules Verne's An Antartic Mystery was also an intentional sequel to the story), so maybe that had something to do with Tom Cruise agreeing to join Guillermo Del Toro and James Cameron's doomed attempt to put Lovecraft's story on screen, but I think I'd rather see Fincher handle something like Pym or possibly another Poe story and make it work for modern audiences.
I don't think THE RAVEN will really reintroduce the author any more than TOTAL RECALL had much to do with P. K. Dick's fiction.
Ironically, my first introduction to Poe were the lurid Roger Corman adaptations that usually starred Vincent Price. I think the Raven will probably be more in that vein.
