Bradley Cooper playing Lucifer in “Paradise Lost”


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Ed Helms calls his “Hangover” co-star Zach Galifianakis the bearded devil. Now his other “Hangover” co-star is about to play the actual devil on screen.

Bradley Cooper has been confirmed for the role of Lucifer in director Alex Proyas’ adaptation of John Milton’s “Paradise Lost,” THR reports. The fantasy film will detail a major battle in heaven waged between Lucifer and the archangel, Michael. The trade says “Lost” will be shot ay Sydney’s Fox Studios in Australia.

Cooper is enjoying a string of good creative decisions. “Limitless,” which just reached DVD an Blu-ray, received positive reviews and decent business, while “The Hangover Part II” was a commercial blockbuster (even as it alienated critics).

“Lost” sounds epic, and Proyas just might be the right guy for the job. His previous credits involve the underrated sci-fi thrillers “Dark City” and “I, Robot.”

“I’m delighted to have found such overwhelming support here in [New South Wales] for such a unique film offering unparalleled exposure for NSW cast and crew to the cutting edge technology that will be used in the making of ‘Paradise Lost,’” Proyas said.

Let’s just hope the film is released in 2D.
