Surprise! Priest is getting the 3D treatment

Add another film to the 3D pile, PRIEST.

The film is adapted from the manga series written and drawn by Min-Woo Hyung. The story is about a priest (Paul Bettany) who disobeys church law by teaming up with young sheriff (Cam Gigandet) and beautiful priestess (Maggie Q). The three must track down a band of renegade vampires who have kidnapped the priest's niece and are planning to turn her.

We haven't really gotten a lot on this movie. There have been no new clips, posters, stills, or anything else promo-wise. Screen Gems announced that PRIEST will be released in 3D on January 14, 2011. President of Screen Gems, Clint Culpepper had this to say on the conversion, "We're thrilled with the way PRIEST has come together, and we saw some spectacular sequences in the film that we all believed would be even more amazing in 3D. Scott, as well as the produced, couldn't be more excited to make the film available for audiences in both 2D and 3D."

Sadly, I cannot make a judgment on whether or not I'd want to see this film in 3D since there's been no clippage or trailer. However, I have read & heard that the manga series is seriously badass.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone out there read the PRIEST manga and want to share with the rest of the class?
