Dominic Purcell has been cast in Paradise Lost by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. THR reports that the actor will star alongside Bradley Cooper, Casey Affleck, Djimon Hounsou, Ben Walker, Camilla Belle and Callan McAuliffe in the Alex Proyas directed action fantasy.
The film will put an action spin on the John Milton's epic poem about the war between angels in heaven. Purcell has been cast as Jerahmeel, an angel who falls in with Lucifer and ultimately becomes the Dark One's right-hand man as the renamed Moloch.
Purcell appeared last in the remake of Straw Dogs and Killer Elite. The Prison Break star just finished shooting Vikingdom and has Bad Karma and Officer Down forthcoming. I liked hm in Killer Elite and think he is a solild addition to the cast. What are your thoughts?
