First Look: Lame Concept Art for Lucifer in Alex Proyas 'Paradise Lost'
I'd love to say 'meet the new Lucifer' but this is hardly more than a look at his eyes, so that doesn't really work this time. Legendary.com (via ComingSoon) has unveiled the first concept art image of Lucifer, to be played by Bradley Cooper, in Alex Proyas' upcoming project Paradise Lost, based on John Milton's epic poem. I'm not sure why, of all things, they decided simply to reveal his dark eyes and some weird wispy Photoshopped imagery on top, but suffice it to say, the best word for this art is none other than lame. Legendary's Comic-Con plans seem to have been way overhyped this year, and this is one example of that.
Here's the official logline for Paradise Lost: Lucifer and Michael, God's greatest archangels, share the bond of extraordinary friendship until God produces his greatest creation: Man. Unable to remain subservient to God if it means bowing down to humanity, Lucifer begins his dark descent and is cast out - only to plot his revenge. Legendary Pictures currently has the project in pre-production aiming for a 2012 release, and no one other than Bradley Cooper is attached yet. I've been curious about this project, but this first concept art could not be more uninteresting. I just hope the production itself is making much greater strides than this.
