Director of the "Dark City" will shoot a movie based on the poem by John Milton's "Paradise Lost", published in the 17st century. Of the war between the Archangel Michael and Lucifer Alex Prayers will make a thriller and even, possibly, withdraw it in 3D.
The poem "Paradise Lost" describes the history of the first verse of the white man Adam. An important role played by the fallen angel Lucifer. He organized armed struggle against the Angels and will be the cause of man's fall. In the poem, Adam and Eve were married and before the fall had a sex, but after sex began to wear a different character. In the final Adam will be shown future children and all future until the arrival of the Messiah.
The first version of the script written by Byron Willinger and Phil DiBleysi, Lawrence Kezdan and finally polished by Ryan Kondal. The movie will be shot in the studio Legendary Pictures, aiming at promoting a Warner Bros.
The project was declared four years ago. Then the director appeared as producer of "The Day the Earth Stood Still" Scott Derrickson.
According to his version the viewer will change his habitual attitude toward Satan. "I would like to see the audience from the very beginning were sympathetic to Lucifer, and all for what he is fighting what he believes in and against which it acts, will help to do it" - Derrickson said in an interview with MTV channel in 2008.
Even at that time was ready a full design of all characters, as well as samples of special effects. The project promised to be a breakthrough in visual terms, but at some point, all the talk about it has been ceased.
From this week at the helm of the project is Alex Prayers, on account of which "I, Robot", "Dark City" and the recent "Knowing".
