Milton's poem Paradise Lost has influenced many films, comics and books over the years and Alex Proyas has been trying to get a direct adaptation off the ground at Legendary Pictures for some time now. Well, now it's on it's way and we have our first glimpse of Bradley Cooper as the man who will bring Lucifer to life on the big screen..



Artwork revealed from Paradise Lost by director Alex Proyas and starring Bradley Cooper. Lucifer and Michael, God's greatest archangels, share the bond of extraordinary friendship until God produces his greatest creation: Man. Unable to remain subservient to God if it means bowing down to humanity, Lucifer begins his dark descent and is cast out - only to plot his revenge.


Paradise Lost is set for release sometime towards the end of 2013.

This is such a cool story. I really hope they don't [frick] it up.

Cooper sure is an odd choice to play Lucifer

I'm getting more of a Hillary Clinton vibe from that pic.

Scary!:)

Wonder who is going to play Michael?!
Charlie Hunnam or Alexander Skarsgård would be cool!
nuck82 - 7/24/2011, 5:41 PM
you mean the 1st look at his eyes : P

Awesome!!

Looks epic but it doesn't look like him at all. Meh, they better not screw this up :D

Dayumm didn't know they were making a Paradise Lost film. Paradise Lost basically influenced my entire senior art portfolio!

Cooper is perfect guy to play Lucifer he can be very charismatic and likeable in his roles but in other side he can play the meanest son of a bitch you have ever met.
Great actor with cunning face.
Bar20 - 7/24/2011, 5:50 PM
I wonder if it will look like Clash of the titans or something new...
revloveR - 7/24/2011, 5:50 PM
no words.

Now it feels like this is actually happening. I'm so excited for this movie!
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 6:28 PM
THIS was the story i've waited sooooo long for. This is sure to be the most epic film ever created!

LP4 - 7/24/2011, 6:31 PM
I could see a sequel spin off from this. Lead the end of this film to the Garden of Eden and mankind's first sin.

superbatspiderman - 7/24/2011, 6:36 PM
This could be good but I hope Hollywood doesn't screw it up and take away from the meaning of the story. I bet they probably will tho because Hollywood has a tendency of screwing up classic stories.

@MarvelWeiner
Agree, Brits are the best at Acting hands down.
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 6:56 PM
Also of all the Jesus-centered films, I always wondered WHY they never green-lit a film for "Paradise Lost"

Seemed the most epic to me. Back in college- 2006 my friends and I always talked about how badass a film for that story would have been. I mean we're talking about- the most beautiful and perfect angel of heaven, falling prey to jealousy and ultimately rebelling against God with 1/3 of Heaven's angels, then being cast down to earth by Saint Michael and his sword. From that point on he forever preys on God's people- mankind...and will continue to try leading innocent souls to sin in God's eyes.

This film has the potential to be the greatest thing ever created. But I imagine...this will have THE toughest critics ever. I mean, it's religion we're talking about here and religion will always be a controversial topic, especially when being made into a big screen film.
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 7:02 PM
I've had this picture on Facebook since like...I first created the thing back in like 2007 or 2008 (can't remember) but this was always my favorite.



Then of course this one always made me happy, lol



These are cool...

Lucifer and the serpent...


Oh and this one is awesome right here...

LP4 - 7/24/2011, 7:06 PM
Bah! My first pic didn't load dammit. It my most favorite one...



LP4 - 7/24/2011, 7:11 PM
Ah ok now the [frick]ing loads dammit. That above has been my consistent favorite picture. I mean, the sheer power in the way Lucifer is staring down God. So opposing...so strong.

I am in no way a supporter of Lucifer but I respect him. For a guy to be so bold and so brave as to take on GOD itself...AND being so charismatic so as to lure 1/3 of the angels down with him.

Just incredible.
tazmaniak - 7/24/2011, 7:15 PM
They are putting a lot of work into this, as it has an ungodly amount amount of production time.It's supposed to blend live action and motion capture.

The schedule involves 20 weeks of pre-production, 8 weeks of principal photography and 72 weeks of post-production.

That's why it's not coming out until late 2013.
Ryden - 7/24/2011, 7:19 PM
This should be good, Satan was always my favourite character from the Bible :D


@Lp4- All that pic needs is a "GTFO" written over it lol.
ClarkFarley2012 - 7/24/2011, 7:22 PM
Very interesting...Cooper as the Devil. I'll be checking this out.
Masterkalel - 7/24/2011, 7:28 PM
Hopefully they will not screw up or ruin the moral of the ORIGINAL epic, the poem that Coined the term EPIC! Next to THE BIBLE of course
alucard365 - 7/24/2011, 7:31 PM
I hate Religion.
LP4 - 7/24/2011, 7:32 PM
@Ryden- Hahahaha seriously man, that would be the cherry on the top for that picture!

AL PACINO played the best Lucifer in the history of cinema, hands down.

I will rank Robert De Niro 2nd and Viggo 3rd and Jack Nicholson 4th. You really think someone like Cooper can match any of these guys?
CrossOver - 7/24/2011, 7:46 PM
I hope this really changes the way people look at Bradley Cooper and his acting abilities.
Rubbers - 7/24/2011, 7:53 PM
Why do they always make Lucifer scary or ugly? He's is a liar and deceiver. If he even exists, he'd appear beautiful, perfect, flawless; like some hot superfical biatch that you just can't say no to.

Or like any one of those three hot chicks in the movie 'Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar'. Completely had me fooled!
mastarockafella - 7/24/2011, 8:10 PM
I'm a believer of the Bible and this story is truly one epic battle between good and evil. This is going to be great. I can't wait for this.
JohnTom88 - 7/24/2011, 8:14 PM
Bradley Cooper - The devil, as in Daredevil
SamHell - 7/24/2011, 8:22 PM
Like the great George Carlin said, "Religion is just mind control"
SamHell - 7/24/2011, 8:26 PM
One of my fav bands Truder
GUNSMITH - 7/24/2011, 8:27 PM
I HOPE PROYAS FOLLOWS THE BOOK AND GETS THE LOOK OF IT RIGHT, WINGS AND THE FALL, JUST THAT OLD EPIC GOTHIC LOOK TO EVERYTHING. THIS IS SUCH A EPIC TALE....PROYAS IS THE RIGHT DIRECTOR FOR THIS. AFTER THE CROW, INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE AND I ROBOT AND ALL HIS OTHER FILMS..THIS ONE MIGHT BECOME HIS BEST YET..
Mr2099 - 7/24/2011, 8:56 PM
Bradley Cooper as the devil? I liked it better when I heard he would be the new DAREdevil.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 7/24/2011, 9:14 PM
@Intruder

exactly how I want the feel of this movie to be
superbatspiderman - 7/24/2011, 9:14 PM
Also I hope that they don't portray Lucifer as an Anti Hero or a revolutionary because he is bot he is pure evil. All bad things in the world are because of him. Bradley cooper is an interesting choice tho I think he'll do fine. maybe this role will prove whether or not he can play the Crow.

Copper as Lucifer...? I can see that
