Bradley Cooper might have the face of an angel, but he’s set to star as the devil himself in director Alex Proyas’ adaptation of John Milton’s Paradise Lost, according to a spokesperson for Legendary Pictures. The Associated Press previously reported that the film would be shot in Sydney, Australia and targeted for a 2013 release.

Milton’s Paradise Lost, an epic poem published in 1667, tells the story of a charismatic Lucifer, who leads a failed rebellion against God and is subsequently banished from heaven.
