Priest gets Director

Dec. 17, 2008by:

So when they annouced that there is an adaptation of the legendary graphic novel "Priest"--something of which I know nothing about--coming up, I was not impressed. And after announcing the film's director recently, I must say, I'm still not impressed. But I am aware of its huge following, so for all those of you out there who have been licking your chops the second you found out about this film--this is for you.

Scott Charles Stewart, a former ILM employee and first time director will be directing your precious little baby. The film is set in a world destroyed 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. WATCHMEN it ain't, but I guess it'll do.

NOTE: I wrote this entire article thinking that the film in question was actually PREACHER and not PRIEST. Boy are my cheeks red.

Gerard Butler was actually supposed to star at one point but that was back when Sam Raimi was producing (and before Butler did 300).

I only read a couple issues of the comic but I wasn't a fan, it just reminded me of a lot of other series that were better done, however, Sinjay's right the premise doesn't sound much like the comic from what I remember.

Big let down.

I'm a big fan of the series Priest, and for years there have been rumours of a Priest film, and all the news was bad. This story is as far from the books as you can get. The books have nothing to do with vampires or kidnapped nieces. The series is very good, this movie will be very bad.

C'mon Barna, you should've known better I mean don't you remember the huge deal you guys made a couple months back about Sam Mendes signing on to direct Preacher?

Nah, that's alright though. You guys're allowed a mistake every once in a while and at least you fessed up to it, you could've just re-written the article.
