Variety is reporting that rising star Bradley Cooper is close to joining Alex Proyas‘ new film Paradise Lost, an adaptation of John Milton‘s 17th-century poem. Cooper is up for the role of Lucifer aka the Devil. It’s kind of funny that he’s attaching himself to the project at this particular time since he’s also attached to a remake of one of Proyas’ older films, The Crow.
The film is said to be an epic that will include aerial warfare and will act as a tentpole action vehicle for Legendary Pictures. For those unfamiliar with the poem, it tells the story of “the story of the epic war in heaven between archangels Michael and Lucifer.” Sounds interesting and I’m looking forward to hearing more.
For those of you eager to see Cooper again on the big screen, you’ll have to wait until May 26th for The Hangover Part II.
