Maggie Q: Which actress has just signed on to join Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet in the horror Western, Priest, playing a vampire huntress extraordinaire?

Maggie A: Maggie Q.

Yes, the **Live Free Or Die Hard **star has joined the cast of Scott Stewart’s eagerly-awaited follow-up to Legion (a movie which is generating all kinds of positive buzz), a demented thriller about a vampire-killing priest (Bettany) and a sheriff (Gigandet) who team up to hunt down a group of bloodsuckers that have kidnapped Bettany’s niece.

Q will play a priestess who rivals Bettany in the vamp-killing stakes (sorry) in the movie, which is based on a TokyoPop comic that had the good sense to recognise that the only way to improve upon the basic plotline of John Ford’s** The Searchers** – and, indeed, virtually anything - was to introduce vampires.

Screen Gems, which also backed Legion, is stumping up the cash for Priest.
