Alex Proyas' Paradise Lost film tumbles from the heavens

02.09.2012

The adaptation of PARADISE LOST to be directed by Alex Proyas and star Bradley Cooper as Lucifer was put on hold a couple of months ago, but now it's been shelved. 

Variety reports that budgetary issues were still the concern, because Legendary just couldn't figure out how to change the script in order to keep costs down. Variety's source also said that the technology to pull off the film, which depicts a war in heaven, just wasn't there. I'm going to have to call bullshit on that one- how many lower budgeted films have we seen that have stacked up against the big boys? Hell, even IRON SKY looks to be on par with a big alien invasion film like BATTLESHIP, for a fraction of the budget.

Bradley Cooper was to star with Benjamin Walker, Rufus Sewell, Dominic Purcell, Callan McAuliff, Camilla Belle and Casey Affleck. Now that the actors are free we'll see what they get up to next.

Such a great idea

I had an idea for a film like this years before I heard about Proyas' idea. It's a shame because I feel like this could have been an amazingly epic movie. Just imagine hundreds of angels fighting each other 300 style in the sky. How badass would that be?

What a load of horse shit...

I love alex's films alot I was looking forward to this I am sure it will come through so many films have done so amazing with less money. So the CGI in some of those films weren't good but hey they were better then most big budget hollywood films.

This is very unfortunate in my opinion but I guess it is better that they just shelved it instead of making it with a shoestring budget into something it was not met to be.
