While promoting the DVD release of "The Hangover Part II" the actor revealed some details about his next role in "Paradise Lost."
The film, which is an adaptation of the (virtually-unadaptable) 17th-century poem by John Milton, will not only be brought to life on the big screen but director Alex Proyas will use motion capture. The film will be "like 'Avatar,'" Cooper said.
Cooper shared photos from his own Blackberry detailing what kind of "ridiculous" gear he has to wear on-set as well as a little bit about his fallen-from-grace character.
"Paradise Lost" is set to hit theaters in 2013.
What do you think about the epic poem getting a big, Hollywood makeover? (English majors, the floor is yours!)
