Dominic Purcell Goes Bad In “Paradise”

Dominic Purcell (“Prison Break,” “Blade Trinity”) has joined the cast of the Alex Proyas-directed fantasy epic “Paradise Lost” at Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures says Heat Vision.

The film is an adaptation of John Milton’s 17th-century poem about the war in heaven between archangels Michael (Benjamin Walker) and Lucifer (Bradley Cooper). Casey Affleck, Djimon Hounsou, Camilla Belle and Callan McAuliffe also star.

Purcell has been cast as Jerahmeel, an angel who falls in with Lucifer and ultimately becomes Moloch, Satan’s right-hand man. Shooting kicks off early next year in Australia.
