Two upcoming Relativity Media films may not have titles, but they now have release dates.  First up, James McTeigue’s Untitled Raven Project (previously titled The Raven) will open on March 9, 2012.  Per the press release, “The film is a gritty thriller in which Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders.”  The untitled movie also stars Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

Relativity has also set the date for the Untitled Farrelly/Wessler Comedy that has an absolutely ridiculous cast starring in a series of interconnected stories.  Just some of the names on board include Johnny Knoxville, Gerard Butler, Anna Faris, Seann Hugh Jackman, Richard Gere, Uma Thurman, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Kate Winslet, Terrence Howard, Liev Schreiber, Elizabeth Banks, Justin Long, Kristen Bell, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Stephen Merchant.  Hit the jump for the full press release.

Relativity Media continued to build its 2012 release slate today, announcing it will release the Untitled Raven Project, directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta) and starring John Cusack (Being John Malkovich) on March 9, 2012 and the Untitled Farrelly/Wessler Comedy on April 13, 2012. These two films join previously announced thriller, House at the End of the Street, which is set to hit theaters next Spring on February 3, 2012.

The Untitled Raven Project also stars Luke Evans (Immortals, Clash of the Titans), Alice Eve (Sex and the City 2), Brendan Gleeson (Harry Potter Series) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster). The script was written by Ben Livingston (Bruce Almighty) and Hannah Shakespeare (Loverboy).

The film is a gritty thriller in which Edgar Allan Poe (Cusack) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Evans) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders.

Trevor Macy and Marc D. Evans are producing for Intrepid Pictures, alongside Aaron Ryder for FilmNation Entertainment, who brought the project to Intrepid. Galavis Films’ Jesus Martinez is executive producing. FilmNation is selling international distribution rights to the film.

Following in April, comes the Untitled Farrelly/Wessler Comedy which boasts the greatest cast ever assembled in the most dangerous comedy ever made. The star-studded cast includes Johnny Knoxville, Gerard Butler, Anna Faris, Seann William Scott, Hugh Jackman, Richard Gere, Uma Thurman, Halle Berry, Emma Stone, Naomi Watts, Kate Bosworth, Kate Winslet, Terrence Howard, Liev Schreiber, Elizabeth Banks, Justin Long, Kristen Bell, Patrick Warburton, Josh Duhamel, Jason Sudeikis, Chloe Grace Moretz, Stephen Merchant, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jack McBrayer, Kieran Culkin and Chris Pratt in a series of interconnected stories, each one more outrageous than the last.

The film is being produced by Peter Farrelly (Something About Mary), Charles Wessler (Dumb & Dumber), GreeneStreet Films’ John Penotti (In the Bedroom) and Relativity Media’s Ryan Kavanaugh (Immortals). Executive producers are Tim Williams (Swimfan) of GreeneStreet Films and Tucker Tooley (Immortals) of Relativity Media. Co-producers are Tom Gormican and Marc Ambrose. Rocky Russo and Jeremy Sosenko also serve as associate producers.
