Two More Join Bettany's Priest
Moyer and Collins up for vampire flick

24 August 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: Variety

You’d think, what with starring in True Blood, that Stephen Moyer would have had it up to the proverbial here with vampires. Yet the British actor has become the latest actor to sign on to the vampire western, Priest, in which Paul Bettany plays a badass clergyman hunting down a group of fanged fiends who have kidnapped his niece.

Moyer, who plays the bloodsucking Bill on the acclaimed HBO show, might have been attracted to Priest by virtue of the fact that he won’t have to strap on a pair of fangs. Instead, he’ll play Bettany’s human brother.

Filming on the Scott Stewart-directed movie begins today in Los Angeles, and Moyer isn’t the only bit of last-minute casting. 90210 star, Lily Collins, has signed on to play the Searchers-style niece, completing a fine ensemble that also includes Maggie Q, Cam Gigandet and Karl Urban, who will play the villainous Black Hat.

Michael De Luca, Josh Donen and Mitchell Peck are producing the movie.

Hmmmmmm
Hope this turns out to be good as I really rate Bettany and he needs a breakout hit to cement leading man status. Just stay away from constantine and ghost rider script/story/visuals and we should be fine...... More
