Karl Urban is going from Bones to Bloodsucker as he has just been cast as the villain in Screen Gem’s post-apocalyptic horror thriller Priest, where he will be playing the leader of a band of vampires.
A little about Priest:
Adapted by Cory Goodman from a TokyoPop comic, “Priest” is set in a world ravaged by war between man and vampires. Paul Bettany stars as a warrior priest and vampire fighter who teams with a sheriff (Cam Gigandet) and warrior priestess (Maggie Q) to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece. Urban plays Black Hat, the evil leader of the bloodsuckers who was once a priest and hunter but now fancies himself a god of vampires.
Karl Urban rocks! I have loved him since Lord of the Rings. I think he will make a great vampire.
What do you think? Does he fit the part? Why or why not?
I didn’t even notice, but Cam Gigandet is in Priest too. Hopefully he’s shirtless.
