Alex Proyas Tackling an Action-Packed Paradise Lost

Whenever a director like Alex Proyas attaches himself to something, I’m instantly interested. He is, after all, responsible for two of my favorite films of all time — “Dark City” and “The Crow”. And yeah, that means I’ll even overlooked the bloated “I Robot” as a result.

Proyas’ latest is attaching himself to a big-budget take on John Milton’s 17th-century English poem “Paradise Lost” for Legendary Pictures. The poem tells the epic war in heaven between archangels Michael and Lucifer.

But don’t worry, you crazy kids, this won’t mean you’ll have to sit in a dark theater and read a poem, or be bored to death as someone translates the poem into a dreary, dull movie. Proyas’ version will be “an action vehicle that will include aerial warfare, possibly shot in 3D.”

How you like them apples?

    If “Dante’s Inferno” the game (and anime) are any indication of what can be done with a little imagination and great source material than this could be seriously epic!! A film chronicling Lucifer’s fall from heaven and rise to power in hell?!?! Yes please!!!
