More possible casting news coming in for Alex Proyas’ take on the devilishly classic tale of Paradise Lost. Who’s next to do battle with evil incarnate? Read on for the skinny!
According to Deadline, Legendary Pictures is negotiating with Benjamin Walker to play the archangel Michael in Paradise Lost, the action epic battle between good and evil that is inspired by the John Milton poem.
Walker, who just wrapped the title role in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, will go mano a mano against Bradley Cooper’s Lucifer in the war that began all wars. After being cast out of Heaven, Lucifer mounts an army that battles the forces of good, and the film will have cutting-edge visual effects that will make these battles resemble 300 meets Lord of the Rings — but with winged warriors.
While Warner Bros is finalizing a release date, Paradise Lost is likely to reach theaters in fourth quarter 2013.
