Priest cast expands
The cast for Priest is starting to look really interesting, we already had Paul Bettany as the lead and the original comic is an interesting story that has plenty of scope for looking great on screen. Now though there are a number of names that have been attached that have upped the level of the film.
Apart from Paul Bettany we already knew that Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Lily Collins, Stephen Moyer, and Karl Urban were set to star, and that line-up in itself is a strong sounding one. However there's one name that's just been announced that has captured my imagination even more.
Christopher Plummer and Brad Dourif, who I'm just seeing give an excellent performance in Deadwood, are signed up to the film according to the director of Legion and Priest, Scott Stewart who made the announce.
ment on his Twitter account.
He revealed on Twitter through First Showing that the two names have been cast. Now add that to the Variety announcement of Mädchen Amick, and I think we're looking at a cast of some great experience and depth, and that could suggest great things for the film.
According to the story Amick will be playing Shannon, the mother of the kidnapped girl who the vampire hunting Priest and a group of other warriors head off to save a girl from a deadly group of vampires.
It'll be interesting to see how Scott Stewart handles the film, and more so how his first film Legion plays out, for that bears more than a passing resemblance to the tone and feel of Priest, and that's without considering they share the same lead.
