Women will be sinning double now that Bradley Cooper has confirmed that he will be playing the ‘Devil’ in the upcoming film “Paradise Lost.”

The film is the big screen adaptation of the epic 17th century poem by John Milton, by the same name.  IMDb describes the film as an action-heavy version on the poem that is centered on the war in heaven between archangels Michael and Lucifer.

The Hollywood hunk has played a variety of roles in recent years that range from nonchalant funny man in the “Hangover” movies, to action hero in movies like “A-Team” and  “Limitless.” His role as Lucifer in the future film will take a different, more serious, approach than what he is used to while still maintaining his bad-boy persona.

Cooper announced that he had landed the part in a discussion with the Huffington Post Monday morning.

“Paradise Lost, that seems like the realest one. That's happening," he said.

The film will be under the helm of Alex Proyas, who also directed Will Smith’s “I, Robot.”

“Paradise Lost” entered pre-production in May, with “Star Wars” writer and Oscar nominee Lawrence Kasdan, penning the script.

Bradley Cooper is currently in New York filming “The Place Beyond the Pines” with co-star Ryan Gosling, but production dates for “Paradise Lost” have yet to be announced.

Cooper’s devil character is slated to make a 2012 debut on the big screen, while “The Place Beyond the Pines” is scheduled for a 2013 US premiere.
