Daniel Craig Proclaims "I, Lucifer"



Daniel Craig is being reported to be positive in playing the role of Satan in fantasy comedy flick "I, Lucifer."

Speculations on him keep playing a major role in "I, Lucifer" have indeed circulated heavily during couple past months, but all of those seem to be proven true in turn. Yes, Daniel Craig has reportedly been positive to land deals for the starring part as the titular character in the fantasy comedy flick, a production of Bright Angel film studio.

"The role really appealed to Daniel, who loves artistic challenges," a source remarked. "He doesn't want to be typecast just as an action hero after the success of 'Casino Royale.'"

An adaptation of Glen Duncan's best-selling novel inspired by John Milton's poem "Paradise Lost", the movie follows Lucifer as he is given a last shot at redemption by living out a blameless life as a human for one month. It is said that Craig will begin shooting the picture between "The Golden Compass" and "Bond 22."

"Dancing with Agnes" director Dan Harris has been appointed to direct based on a script he himself wrote alongside Michael Dougherty and David Logan, who will also co-executive produce. Dougherty, in the meantime, is set to produce as well together with Paige Simpson and Clark Westerman.

In related news, it is also reported that Craig is being wooed to assume similar role in a direct adaptation of "Lost" besides Heath Ledger with Scott Derrickson being tipped to direct. Script for the project, originally penned by Philip DiBlasi and Byron Willinger before getting a rewrite by Stuart Hazeldine, has reportedly been purchased by producer Vincent Newman for Legendary Pictures to co-finance.
