PARADISE LOST Finds Its Archangel Michael: Benjamin Walker

Apparently Benjamin Walker (Pictured on far left) (ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER) is in negotiations to play the archangel Michael in Alex Proyas' PARADISE LOST. The classic story of good vs. evil will pit Walker against Bradley Cooper's Lucifer.

Says Proyas: "I've sometimes thought that only an insane person would want to make this movie, because it's visually audacious and has to live up to a classic poem that is so beloved. I don't think the visuals could have been done justice until now, which is the great fun of being a film director in this modern age of visual effects. Despite all those possibilities, the characters are what's most important. His deal isn't closed yet, but I think there's a wonderful duality about Ben's persona, this combination of great strength and perfect innocence that works so well for Michael. And Bradley is the most charming guy you'll ever meet, with this extraordinary charisma. Lucifer was the brightest and smartest of the archangels, and even as he descended into evil and evolved into Satan, he's not just some black-and-white villain. Bradley brings extraordinary depth to that journey."

Shooting starts in Sydney this January. Look for PARADISE LOST in theaters in Q4 of 2013.
