    Proyas Signs up for Paradise Lost

    Back in April last year I mentioned two different attempts to adapt John Milton's poem "Paradise Lost" for the big screen (see all posts). There's been precious little about those two films since then, but now what seems to be a third potential version has entered the fray. According to Variety
    Alex Proyas (Knowing, Dark City) has signed up to direct the movie with Legendary Pictures. Stuart Hazeldine, Byron Willinger, Philip de Blasi and Lawrence Kasdan have all worked on the screenplay. Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce with Warner Brothers involved as well. Thanks to Peter Chattaway for that.

      This is the same project as the big budget version that was to be helmed by Scott Derrickson. Derrickson's off, Proyas is attached. (Found an interview from May where Derrickson says his Paradise Lost movie is in development at Legendary Pictures.)
