Paradise Lost at the Movies

Various sources suggest possibilities for forthcoming movies of Milton's Paradise Lost. On 9/16/10 Variety mentioned a director for a film of Paradise Lost and on 5/4/11 it said Bradley Cooper might be cast as Satan. While this major project (one hundred million dollars budget?) remains in pre-production, there are notices of another independently-produced film of Milton's epic (up to thirty-five million dollars?). It has been suggested that the first project will be distributed by Warner Brothers , with Alex Proyas as director. The smaller project is attributed to Granite Entertainment and STV Networks. No exact release dates are given but the films might be available in a year or two. Some possible data sources include: Movie Insider, The Paradise Lost Study Guide, Schmoop and Screenrant.
