FilmNation Entertainment has set V For Vendetta director James McTeigue to helm Message from the King. The film centers on an outsider who comes to LA to investigate the sudden disappearance of his sister. Oliver Butcher and Stephen Cornwell (Unknown) scripted the thriller. McTeigue recently directed the Edgar Allen Poe-centered thriller The Raven starring John Cusack and Luke Evans. It appears that things went well with the production, as FilmNation also financed that project and has now quickly set McTeigue for Message from the King. No other details on the film are known at this point besides that basic logline. The Raven opens March 9th, 2012.
