It’s now a lock that Alex Proyas’ take on John Milton’s classic 17th century poem “Paradise Lost” for Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures will be shot at Sydney’s Fox Studios says The Hollywood Reporter.
Bradley Cooper is confirmed in the role of Lucifer in the Warner Bros. Pictures production which will deal with the epic war in heaven between the archangels.
The project will involve 20 weeks of pre-production, eight weeks of principal photography and motion capture, and 72 weeks of post-production and visual effects work. Around $93 million U.S. dollars in production expenditure will be brought to the state of New South Wales along with 1,300 jobs.
The deal will also see Digital Domain, the California-based digital effects house, setup a base in Sydney that will continue beyond the film’s production.
