Though it was Ben Affleck who played the fallen angel in Dogma, Casey Affleck always seemed the more angelic of the two brothers.  Finally cinema will reattain balance now that, per Variety, the younger Affleck is in negotiations to play the angel Gabriel in Paradise Lost.  Based on the John Milton epic poem, the story center on an epic battle of good and evil between Michael (Benjamin Walker) and Lucifer (Bradley Cooper), who mounts an army after after he is cast out of heaven.  Dijmon Hounsou also stars as Abdiel, the angel of death, in the adaptation directed by Alex Proyas (Knowing).  The casting is shaping up really well.  Affleck, who will next be seen in Tower Heist on November 4, is a nice addition.

Legendary Pictures is eying the end of 2013 for the 3D release.  For all our coverage on Paradise Lost, including casting, quotes from Proyas, and a report from the Comic-Con panel, click here.

    If this movie ain’t already shaping up to be THE most exciting release of 2013 – the ’24′ movie notwithstanding – then I’ll eat my cat’s leftovers (and post it on Youtube), in other words, this movie is going to be a new dimension of sheer awesomeness… James Cameron can just cancel ‘Avatar 2 & 3′ now, it won’t have anything on this baby, go Alex Proyas, GO!!!
