Priest - Cam Gigandet Close Up

A few photos from the set of Scott Stewart‘s Priest have hit the net. Actors Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet were captured in full costume while filming the supernatural-western. Over at JFXOnline, they’ve posted a few behind the scenes images of these two between takes.

The story of Priest centers on “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.” The cast also includes Maggie Q, Karl Urban, and Stephen Moyer.

Production on the film just began a week ago in Long Beach, California. From looking at these pictures one thing sticks out in my mind. Paul’s outfit reminds me of the Jedi robes worn in Star Wars. It specifically looks like the one Hayden Christensen wore when Anakin turned to the dark side. Am I the only one who sees that?

What do you think of the first set photos from Priest?
