Bradley Cooper and Alex Proyas’ ‘Paradise Lost’ Gets Delayed

While any and all tentpole projects can get a fair bit of funding, it’s the more intriguing pieces that appear to be getting the bad end of their respective deals.

The latest project to get delayed is, according to Deadline, Legendary Pictures’ upcoming film, Paradise Lost.

Helmed by Alex Proyas, the film is set to star Bradley Cooper, Djimon Honsou, Casey Affleck, Camilla Belle, and Callan McAuliffe, and will obviously be based on the John Milton poem, which follows the story of “the battle between good and evil.”

With the January start date now officially off the books, the film needs to get its $120 million budget down 10-15%, until it will get the green light. It remains to be seen if that will be happening anytime soon, but hopefully it does, as this is one intriguing sounding project. I really like the cast here, and honestly, this could be just the film that Proyas needs to get his career back on track.

What do you think?

  1. Perhaps pure ignorance here, but I wasn’t aware Mr. Proyas’ career is off-track. My impression is he just takes a long time between producing very interesting films. If he is on the outs, then yes, let’s hope he gets to make this movie.
