Djimon Hounsou is joining the cast of Paradise Lost.
The Blood Diamond star will appear alongside Bradley Cooper and Ben Walker as the feuding archangels in the big screen adaptation of John Milton's epic poem, Variety reports.
Djimon will play the angel of death in the film, directed by Australian Alex Proyas, who was also at the helm of I, Robot starring Will Smith and Knowing with Nicolas Cage.
Paradise Lost will be shot predominantly at Sydney's Fox Studios, and is due to be released in 2013.
Paradise Lost tells the story of archangels Lucifer (Cooper) and Michael (Walker), who fall out over God's sudden love for his new creation - Adam and Eve.
Lucifer rebels and is cast out of heaven and goes on to tempt Adam and Eve, leading to their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.
