Karl Urban Cast as Villain in PRIEST

by Joey Paur


Karl Urban has joined Paul Bettany in the upcoming post-apocalyptic horror thriller, Priest, which is being adapted from the TokyoPop comic book. 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 played by Cam Gigandet, and warrior priestess played by Maggie Q, to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.

Urban will play the villain in this story that goes by the name of Black Hat, who is the leader of the vampires. He was once a priest and hunter but now fancies himself a god of vampires.

Karl Urban sure was awesome in Star Trek wasn't he! Bones was my favorite character. He is a a great actor, and it will be fun to see him in this villainous vampire role.
