Sam Reid Joins “Paradise Lost”

British-Aussie actor Sam Reid (“Anonymous,” “Spooks”) has joined the cast of Alex Proyas’ big-budget mythological epic “Paradise Lost” for Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures says Variety.

The film is an adaptation of John Milton’s 17th-century poem about the epic war in heaven between archangels Michael (Benjamin Walker) and Lucifer (Bradley Cooper).

Reid will play the archangel Raphael who warns Michael against trusting that Lucifer can be redeemed.

Casey Affleck, Djimon Hounsou, Callan McAuliffe, Dominic Purcell, Diego Boneta and Camilla Belle also star. Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Vincent Newman are producing.
