Update: Be sure to check out the Priest Cast Interviews.
Over the past few months Screen Gems have released several photos from their upcoming Manga adaptation, Priest. They featured the title character played by Paul Bettany, his sidekick Cam Gigandet, the damsel in distress Lily Cole, and a kick-ass priestess played by Maggie Q.
Those guys are great and all but what about Karl Urban? He’s also in the film but has been missing from the group. He plays the character Black Hat and guess what — he’s a vampire! Check out the first full poster of Urban from the Comic-Con floor and another shot of Bettany in all his tattooed glory…
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 Stephen Moyer, Madchen Amick, and Christopher Plummer.
The film is directed by Scott Stewart and is scheduled to hit theaters on May 13th. It will also be in 3D like everything else these days. Get used to it.
