Short Film The Raven To Become A Long Film

Universal buys rights to sci-fi short to be developed as a film starring Mark Wahlberg

Universal Pictures has bought the rights to the sci-fi short film above, The Raven, to develop it into a movie starring Mark Wahlberg. The director of the short, Ricardo de Montreuil, will also call the shots on the big screen version, while Wahlberg will produce alongside Steve Levinson. Not to be confused with James McTeigue's The Raven (the Edgar Allen Poe film) starring John Cusack. Presumably one of the will have a title change (and it’ll probably be this one).

So, watch the short and tell us if you think it’ll make a good movie (and try to get past the Wahlberg factor, okay?).
