Wonder of wonders, they are making a movie of John Milton’s immortal epic poem Paradise Lost.
And, what’s more, they are making it in Sydney. (Wouldn’t Wellington have been more appropriate?)
The New South Wales government made the announcement with a justifiable flourish. To be directed by Alex Proyas (I, Robot), it is touted to be worth $88 million to the state.
The film will be made at Sydney’s Fox Studios, creating 1,300 jobs.
It will star Bradley Cooper as Lucifer, and has a release target of 2013.
