The Legendary Pictures project also stars Bradley Cooper and Benjamin Walker and is based on an adaptation of John Milton’s 17th century epic poem about the fall of man.
Alex Proyas will direct and Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing alongside Vincent Newman through his Vincent Newman Entertainment.
Warner Bros will distribute the film, which is conceived as a possible 3D action epic between the archangel’s Michael and Lucifer, to be played by Walker and Cooper, respectively.
Stuart Hazeldine developed the first draft of the screenplay that was originally written by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi. Lawrence Kasdan provided a polish as did Ryan Condal, who delivered the most recent draft.
