Bradley Cooper Gives PARADISE LOST Update
Bradley Cooper has some cool films coming out this year, with A Place Beyond the Pines opposite Ryan Gosling and The Silverlinings Playbook from David O. Russell. I was happy when he decided to drop out of the doomed (my opinion) reboot of The Crow so that he could play Lucifer in Alex Proyas' Paradise Lost. The film is an adaptation of John Milton's epic poem about war in heaven. That war almost did not get off the ground because of it's big budget.
During an interview with The Playlist at Sundance, he gave an update. Cooper said that things are back on track, and stated, "We're going to hopefully start in June. Everything's going great. I mean, nothing's done until we're up and shooting."
The Hangover III will not get in the way of Paradise Lost. This will be great for Cooper, who is looking at a $15 million payday for the third comedic installment. Before Paradise Lost hit that bump in the road, it had Benjamin Walker, Casey Affleck, Djimon Housou, Diego Boneta, Camilla Belle, Sam Reid, Rufus Sewell, and Callan McAuliffe attached to star. Let's hope they are all still on board for it, and it makes it to theaters in 2014.
I am really looking forward to seeing the epic battle sequences in this film. What are your thoughts?
