Karl Urban will appear in Priest, a post-apocalyptic horror thriller, where he will play the leader of a band of vampires who fancies himself a god of vampires.
Priest, directed by Scott Stewart, is the story of a world ravaged by war between humans and vampires.
Urban will play opposite Paul Bettany (The Da Vinci Code,) who will star as a warrior priest and vampire fighter. Bettany’s character will team up with a sheriff (Cam Gigandet,) and warrior priestess (Maggie Q,) who are on the trail of the murderous band of vampires, led by Black Hat (Urban,) who have kidnapped the warrior priest/vampire fighter’s niece.
Priest begins production next week, and is due out next summer.
