Dark City director, Alex Proyas, has signed on to direct an adaptation of John Milton‘s epic seventeenth century poem Paradise Lost.
At this moment not much is known about the whole thing, but we do know that Legendary Pictures is behind the project.
And we also know that it “will be crafted as an action vehicle that will include aerial warfare, possibly shot in 3D”.
Paradise Lost will take the frame of an action film, telling the story of the epic war in heaven between archangels Michael and Lucifer as opposed to the downfall of Adam and Eve.
Stuart Hazeldine was in charge for the main draft of the screenplay that was originally written by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi, while Lawrence Kasdan and Ryan Condal also did separate polishes.
Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce along with Vincent Newman.
Warner Bros. will distribute the film worldwide. We definitely expect to hear more details about Paradise Lost, and as usual with every new info, we’ll be back!
