The question remains … will we ever see Priest? Given how many times the release date has been shuffled (it now stands at May 13th, 2011, but who knows?), it’s getting harder and harder to tell. Given that the first image of Paul Bettany as the title character has surfaced in this week’s Entertainment Weekly, maybe we have some hope after all.
Priest is an adaptation of a TokyoPop comic book that is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire. Bettany plays a warrior priest who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece. It’s undergoing a 2D to 3D conversion as we speak.
Look for more on Scott Stewart’s Priest starring Bettany, Cam Gigandet (The Unborn, Pandorum, The Roommate, Twilight), Madchen Amick, Stephen Moyer (“True Blood”), Maggie Q., Christopher Plummer, Brad Dourif, and Alan Dale hopefully soon.
