So here's a weird one: Alex Proyas will be directing an adaptation of John Milton's 17th-century poem 'Paradise Lost' -- the epic story of the war in heaven between archangels Michael and Lucifer, including the temptation of Adam and Eve -- and Bradley Cooper is in early talks to take the role of Lucifer.

This will be a big fanboy tentpole film for Legendary Pictures, according to Variety, and will be crafted as an action vehicle that will include aerial warfare, possibly shot in 3D. Talk about adaptation. Milton must be turning in his grave.
