Twilight's Cam Gigandet to Play Vampire in Priest
06.08.09 by REELZ
Twilight star Cam Gigandet is set to return to the world of the undead in new movie Priest. Based on a TokyoPop comic series, Priest sees a warrior priest go up against savage vampires in a bid to save his kidnapped niece.
Gigandet will be playing a part-vampire boyfriend of the niece, and will be joined by the already announced Paul Bettany (The Da Vinci Code). Director Scott Stewart (Legion) is on board, along with scriptwriter Cory Goodman, and the movie is due for release in September 2010.
It looks like Gigandet is a hot pick for vampire roles, after playing villain James alongside Robert Pattinson in Twilight. If nothing else, he's certainly popular with the ladies. Oh, and the MTV Movie Awards.
