Mission Impossible and Die Hard alum Maggie Q has latched on to another high profile project. According to THR, the actress has signed on to co-star in the upcoming live action adaptation of Priest. The film currently stars Paul Bettany as the title character, and Twilight‘s Cam Gigandet as his sidekick.
More on Priest after the jump…
The film is “set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire and follows a warrior priest who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.” Q has been cast as a priestess who’s described as “a vampire hunter as tough as the priests.” Scott Stewart is directing the film, which will once again reunite him with Legion star, Bettany. The film will be produced for Screen Gems.
They just told me the one thing I wanted to hear. She’s an ass-kicker! That’s what I love about Maggie Q and Michelle Yeoh, their gorgeous ladies, but they will mess you up is you step out of line. I’m wondering how the dynamic will be between her and the two male leads. The majority of the film will have a three amigos type of set up, so I’m interested to see how that will play out.
What do you think about Maggie Q’s addition to the film’s cast?
