Casey Affleck and Camilla Belle are both in talks to star in the Alex Proyas-directed adaptation of Milton’s “Paradise Lost” for Legendary Pictures says Variety.
Milton’s poem deals with the fall from grace of Lucifer (Bradley Cooper) and the war with his brother Michael (Benjamin Walker).
Affleck is in talks to play Gabriel, the angel who also serves as a messenger to God. Belle is up for playing Eve. Djimon Hounsou has already been cast as the angel of death Abdiel.
Stuart Hazeldine, Byron Willinger, Philip de Blasi, Lawrence Kasdan and Ryan Condal have all worked on the script.
