While searching for a picture to accompany this article I found that there is a serious lack of goofy Casey Affleck pictures online. Somehow he always seems to keep it together when cameras are around. Those days of worry will soon be over. Affleck has booked the role of a six-winged angel in Alex ProyasParadise Lost. He will play God’s messenger and Red Bull addict, Gabriel.

Also favored to join the project is Camilla Belle in the lead role of Eve. It’s a role a lot of young actresses wanted but as of now, it’s rumored to be hers. Such a shame that they could only pick one hot, young actress to walk dressed only in carefully placed leaves. Hollywood can be unfair sometimes. (Variety and Deadline)

Benjamin Walker & Bradley Cooper To Beef In ‘Paradise Lost’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/benjamin-walker-to-beef-with-bradley-cooper-in-paradise-lost/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/benjamin-walker-to-beef-with-bradley-cooper-in-paradise-lost/#comments Thu, 04 Aug 2011 12:43:44 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=223451 Ben Walker ain't putting up with your Satan antics, Brad Cooper.

Based on Milton’s 17th Century poem, Alex Proyas‘s Paradise Lost will chronicle the sweeping war between good and evil after Lucifer is thrown out of Heaven and tries to claim the souls of mankind. Dick move, Bradley Cooper. Dick move. But not so fast. We have a Benjamin Walker here to stop you. The Benjamin Walker in question isĀ  Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter star, Benjamin Walker, who is in talks to join the project as the archangel Michael, the only angel powerful enough to fight his brother Lucifer.

With small appearances in Flags Of Our Fathers and Kinsey before freeing the slaves from vampire rule, this is a big role for Walker. Says Proyas of the film, “It’s not just armies battling in an epic war. This is an adventure about the origins of good and evil after Lucifer’s rebellion gets him cast out of Heaven and leads to a struggle with his brother archangel over the soul of mankind, starting with Adam and Eve. That is the scope of the narrative here, and we’ve tried to stay as faithful as possible to Milton’s text, particularly its focus on Lucifer’s evolution and the birth of evil. It’s a family saga, about a group on brothers, two in particular, who are on divergent paths, and Lucifer’s feelings of betrayal by his father and family that forge his descent into evil.”

Staying as faithful as possible to Milton’s text without switching the “s”‘s out for “f”‘s, of course. Man, history is a weird place. (Deadline)

When Bradley Cooper was cast to play Lucifer in Paradise Lost, we wondered aloud how the hell that was going to work. Cooper isn’t known so much for his dark qualities. He’s more so the actor that lonely girls claim as their fictitious boyfriend. Well, today there’s news that clears it all up. Cooper will be lord over the underworld of pain and torture with the help of creepy motion-capture technology.

Director Alex Proyas will begin production soon in Sydney with the intention of a late 2013 release. There’s no word about exactly how much mo-cap will be employed and whether it will be used for all characters or just a select few. We’ll keep you posted when Andy Serkis joins the production because whether the filmmakers know it or not, Andy Serkis finds his way into all motion captured films. He’s like Lawnmower Man.

What the hell is going on with Bradley Cooper and all these underworld roles? First he’s in talks to play The Crow, which makes so much sense it makes me want to chuck my desk out the window, and now he’s in negotiations to play the man himself, Lucifer, in a feature adaptation of Milton’s “Paradise Lost.” The project, which has been gestating at Legendary for years, tells the tale of the struggle between archangels Michael (possibly played by Ed Helms or Zach Galifianakis) and Lucifer.

It seems that Alex Proyas, director of the original The Crow, is the force (and director) behind the adaptation of Milton’s epic poem. But there is no indication that Proyas has anything to do with the developingĀ Crow reboot, which is directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo.

Which begs the question: WHY DO PEOPLE INVOLVED WITH THE CROW LOVE BRADLEY COOPER SO MUCH?

Perhaps his wavy hair and winning smile really play to their goth sensibilities. Lord knows they play to mine. (Variety)

Alex Proyas To Make Poetry Badass With ‘Paradise Lost’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/alex-proyas-to-make-poetry-badass-with-paradise-lost/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/alex-proyas-to-make-poetry-badass-with-paradise-lost/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 These bible dudes is BEEFIN'. And now for news that will cause Stephen Hawking to wank off. Alex Proyas (Dark City, I, Robot, Knowing) is set to make standard English requirements badass! He's just set up a deal with Legendary Pictures to adapt John Milton's 17th-century poem "Paradise Lost" into a feature film. The poem tells the story of the epic war that was fought in Heaven between archangels Michael and Lucifer. It's reported that the film will be action-heavy and feature aerial warfare, possibly in 3D (read: definitely in 3D). Sounds like this could tick off a few religious groups, as it's sure to raise heated debate. All I know is that if there truly is a God, this project won't feature Will Smith or Nicolas Cage. (Variety)
