Fans who might be disappointed that the film version of Jonah Hex seems to have dropped most of its supernatural elements can take pleasure in knowing that so far Screen Gems' Priest is very much calling itself a horror-Western. And it shouldn't be lacking in the action department either thanks to today's announcement that Maggie Q has joined the cast.
Now that Paul Bettany is making the rounds to promote his upcoming dark action flick Legion, he’s finally ready to set his sights on his next film, Priest. Priest reunites the actor with director Scott Stewart, who also helmed Legion. He was on hand at Comic-Con to discuss his latest jump into the action film genre.
Along with the opening of the official Priest website comes the first look at Paul Bettany in the live action adaptation of Tokyo Pop's horror western comic book Priest.
Horror westerns seem to be an oddly hot commodity these days what with quality flicks like The Burrowers already out and Jonah Hex on the way. Another unlikely horror commodity is Cam Gigandet, who has just signed on to star opposite Paul Bettany in the live action adaptation of Tokyo Pop's horror western comic book Priest.
Not content with just one horror project on the horizon, director Scott Stewart is set to reunite with the star of his upcoming supernatural thriller Legion, Paul Bettany, as a means to breathe life into the live-action adaptation of Tokyo Pop's comic Priest.
"I kick ass for the Lord!" There's no way in the world a horror fan can whip out that quote from Peter Jackson's Dead Alive (or Brain Dead for you purists out there) without cracking a smile and reliving the badassery of it all in our heads. Well holy shit. Screen Gems announced today that yet another priest will soon be kicking ass!
The long-gestating adaptation of the Tokyo Pop comic Priest is finally seeing some movement this morning. THR reports that Orphanage co-founder Scott Charles Stewart will be taking the reigns on Priest, with the backing of Screen Gems.
With the shake up over at New Line, a lot of projects that were once a glimmer in the eyes of producer Mike DeLuca are in danger of being shelved. But that’s never stopped the man before.
Got it ready? A whole assload of release dates have been announced all of a sudden, and a few are even for horror films! Check it out: The Nicole Kidman thriller The Visting, which I just cannot find myself getting excited for in the least, has been pushed to November 2nd, 2007. Seems there are others who didn’t find it too exciting either.
Even though I’m trying really hard not to make a lot out of it, I guess it’s somewhat important for you guys to know that we still have more than a year to wait for Resident Evil: Extinction, the second sequel in the steadily declining franchise.
