It feels like casting for Alex Proyas’ upcoming adaptation of John Milton’s epic poem, Paradise Lost, is coming in hard and fast now, which is excellent news, paving the way forward for what should be an amazing project.

It was only a couple of weeks ago that we got the excellent news that Casey Affleck would be joining the cast in the form of archangel Gabriel, and just yesterday we heard that Prison Break’s awesome Dominic Purcell is coming on board too.

Now comes the news via Deadline that the project has found its Adam in Diego Boneta, cast opposite Camilla Belle as Eve, the first man and woman. Boneta’s is not a name I’m especially familiar with, but he’s landed the leading role in the upcoming film adaptation of Rock of Ages, also starring fellow young rising star Julianne Hough, as well as Russell Brand, Alec Baldwin, Bryan Cranston, and Tom Cruise, to name just a few names, so we’ll be getting an idea of what he’s like in a big-screen production when that comes out next summer ahead of Paradise Lost the year after.

Along with Boneta, Belle, Affleck, and Purcell, Paradise Lost will also star Bradley Cooper as the notorious Lucifer, Benjamin Walker as the archangel Michael, and Djimon Hounsou as the angel of death. Production is scheduled to begin in January next year, and this is definitely a project to keep your eye on. It should be pretty damn immense.
