She’ll join Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, Stephen Moyer and Lily Collins in the film, set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire. It follows a warrior priest (Bettany) who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.
Amick will play Shannon, the mother of the kidnapped niece.
Screen Gems is planning an August 13, 2010 release for Priest.
