Trouble in Paradise . . . .

"O fairest flower no sooner blown but blasted . . .
Summer's chief honor if thou hadst outlasted
Bleak winter's force . . . thought to kiss
But kill'd alas, and then bewail'd his fatal bliss."
"On the Death of a Fair Infant Dying of a Cough"
John Milton 1628

Legendary Pictures announces that John Milton (and the rest of us) will wait longer to see Paradise Lost in cinema.

Budgetary problems scuttle epic.
