Gerard Butler Prays For Priest
In negotiations to join action horror

26 June 2006  |  Written by   |  Source: Variety

Phantom Of The Opera star Gerard Butler is busy negotiating to star in Andrew Douglas’ previously announced horror action flick Priest.

If he signs, he’ll be raising the stakes in the fight against nasty vamps in a story based on Min-Woo Hyung’s graphic novel. It sees a warrior priest go against church law by teaming up with a sheriff (fellow thesp Steven Strait, also negotiating) and a priestess to hunt a band of vampires who kidnapped his niece.

Butler’s been getting into warrior mode a lot lately; he’ll next be seen in Zack Snyder’s Spartan army pic 300 and starred as Beowulf in an indie re-telling of the ancient poem, Beowulf & Grendel.

Do Preacher instead!!
Sounds interesting, but there's a better job for him. Gerard Butler would be perfect for the main role in Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's Preacher. He is a dead ringer for Jesse Custer. Granted, this film may never appear due to it's controversial and lengthy story, but we can dream. If shite like Elektra and Catwoman can get made, anything's possible. More
