Graphic Novel Film Adaptation of PRIEST will be in 3D


I told you everything is going 3D. There's no point in complaining about it anymore, because it is quickly becoming the new Hollywood filmmaking standard. Remember that you don't have to watch any of these films in 3D if you don't want to. It's just an option that is being offered for a lot of films these days thanks to Avatar

The Sony owned genre label Screen Gems has announced that the graphic novel film adaptation of Priest will be released in 3D in theaters nationwide on January 14, 2011.

In Priest, a warrior priest disobeys Church law by teaming with a young sheriff and a beautiful priestess. The three band together to track down a band of renegade vampires who have kidnapped the priest's niece before they turn her into one of them.

The film stars Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, Karl Urban, and Maggie Q, and is directed by Scott Stewart. The screenplay is by Cory Goodman, based on the graphic novel series Priest by Min-Woo Hyung.

Commenting on the announcement, Clint Culpepper, President of Screen Gems said,

We're thrilled with the way 'Priest' has come together, and we saw some spectacular sequences in the film that we all believed would be even more amazing in 3D. Scott, as well as the produced, couldn't be more excited to make the film available for audiences in both 2D and 3D.

So there ya have it folks, you'll now have the option to watch Priest in 3D. Movie theaters are hoping to have more than 7,000 digital 3D capable screens up and running by the end of the year.
