Alex Proyas Reunites With ‘Dark City’s Rufus Sewell for ‘Paradise Lost’

Officially excited…

Director Alex Proyas is looking to reteam with his Dark City star Rufus Sewell, who’s in negotiations to join the cast of Paradise Lost at Legendary Pictures, reports Variety.

He would join the previously cast Bradley Cooper, Benjamin Walker and Djimon Hounsou.

Written in 1667, Milton’s epic poem revolves around the fall of man and the classic battle of good vs. evil, telling along the way the story of Satan/Lucifer, the angel who tries to overthrow God, and the temptation of Adam and Eve and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.

The project tells the story of the epic war in heaven between archangels Michael and Lucifer, and will be crafted as an action vehicle that will include aerial warfare, possibly shot in 3D.
