Plot Summary: Adapted by Cory Goodman from a TokyoPop comic book, Priest is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires and follows a warrior priest (Paul Bettany) who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece. Cam Gigandet plays a young wasteland sheriff who is part vampire. He partners with Bettany to save the girl he loves, the niece. Stephen is to play the part of Aaron, the mortal brother of the protagonist and therefore will not be a vampire in this film as he is in True Blood.
