Quick! Name the dullest book you ever had to read for a class. No, not Pilgrim’s Progress. The other one. No, no. Not Silas Marner, either. The third-dullest book you had to read for class? Paradise Lost, of course. The epic poem about the Fall of Man. Alex Proyas is making an action-heavy version of the book, which makes total sense, right? It will include aerial warfare. Maybe Adam will even wield a machine gun! Also, the film may be in 3D. Three dimensions of Eve in the buff (I hope they get Eva Green for Eve, because she looks great in three dimensions). In strange twist, it appears as though Proyas has landed Bradley Cooper as the devil, strange because Cooper was tapped to play the lead in the Crow reboot, which Proyas originated. That film is now facing legal complications.

So what do we think of Adam and Eve facing off against an Evil Emu? (Variety)
