Butler in talks for Priest
Gerard Butler is plastered all over the web just now in a no doubt leaked story that he's in negotiations for the role of a comic book vampire hunting priest.
According to Reuters:
Filmmaker Andrew Douglas, who cut his teeth on last year's remake of "The Amityville Horror, has signed on to direct the Screen Gems project titled "Priest," a post-apocalyptic horror western based on a comic book by Min-Woo Hyung...
...The story centres on a warrior priest (Butler) who disobeys church law by teaming with a young sheriff and a priestess to track down a band of renegade vampires who have kidnapped the priest's niece.
Newcomer Steven Strait, who recently wrapped Screen Gems' horror thriller "The Covenant" and is filming Roland Emmerich's "10,000 B.C.," is in talks to co-star as the sheriff.
