Anonymous star Sam Reid, who plays the Earl of Essex in Roland Emmerich’s period pic, has joined the cast of Alex Proyas’ big-budget adaptation of John Milton’s 17th-century poem Paradise Lost, reports Variety.
Legendary Pictures is backing the heavenly epic, which will be released by Warner Bros. under Legendary’s overall deal with the studio.
Reid will play Raphael, one of the lesser quartet of archangels beneath Lucifer (Bradley Cooper), Michael (Benjamin Walker) and Gabriel (Casey Affleck). Ever the skeptic, he warns Michael against trusting that Lucifer can be redeemed.
