Legendary Pictures has released the first concept art for Lucifer in Alex Proyas’ adaptation of John Milton’s Paradise Lost. The film was part of Legendary Pictures’ pre-production panel at Comic-Con and while I was unable to attend, Hunter called it the most impressive film on the panel and if it lives up to the concept art they were shown, “this movie could be one of the most visually breathtaking things ever projected on the silver screen.” Hopefully, Legendary will release more concept art for the film in the coming weeks.
Milton’s epic poem chronicles Lucifer’s fall from Heaven and his role in leading Adam and Eve to original sin. Proyas says the adaptation will be “an incredible epic film about the Devil’s fall from grace and the Archangel Michael. Adam and Eve play heavily in it as well. This film couldn’t have been made a few years ago. In fact, we’re not even sure we can make it now. But we’re gonna try.” Hit the jump to check out the concept art. The film stars Bradley Cooper, will use motion capture, and is set for a late 2013 release.
