A Different Vampire Project

Priest movie poster (featuring Stephen Moyer)Stephen Moyer, otherwise known as Vampire Bill Compton on HBO‘s hit series True Blood, is starring in an upcoming film titled “Priest“.  A sci-fi thriller in 3D, it is based on the graphic novel series of the same name, written by Min-Woo Hyung.  Paul Bettany plays the lead role of “Priest”, and for Stephen Moyer (who plays his brother Aaron), the tables have turned — he plays a mortal in a world ravaged by vampires.

Upon learning that his niece Lucy (played by Lily Collins), has been kidnapped, the warrior priest breaks his Church vows in order to track down the vampires responsible, and to find Lucy before she is turned.  Joining him on this quest is a warrior priestess played by Maggie Q, and Lucy’s sheriff boyfriend, played by Cam Gigandet.

Director Scott Charles Stewart also directed Legion, and worked the visual effects on a slew of other popular films, which include: Mars Attacks; Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; Superman Returns; Pirates of the Caribbean (2 and 3); Night at the Museum, and Iron Man.  Written by Cory Goodman and Min-Woo Hyung, Priest will be released on May 13.  Fans of the cult classic TV show Twin Peaks will be pleasantly surprised to see one of its beauties in the film, as well.

The movie looks interesting for sure, but definitely not for the faint of heart.  Check out the trailer below, and let us know what you think!
