In addition to last night’s news that Mädchen Amick had joined the cast of director Scott Stewart’s Priest, Stewart himself announced on his Twitter account that Christopher Plummer and Brad Dourif are on board as well. No word yet on who they will play in the comic book adaptation.
Opening in theaters on August 13, 2010, Priest is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire. It follows a warrior priest (Paul Bettany) who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.
Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, Stephen Moyer and Lily Collins co-star.
