Cam was at Comic Con along with some of the other cast and crew of Priest. I’ve added some medium quality images to the gallery, I will replace them with HQ when I can.

That’s right, another delay in favor of 3-D. Seems it’s the latest craze in Hollywood. I agree with what the writer said at the end of the article though, it does seem quite amusing of what it will be up against.

Sony Screen Gems has opted to push back the adaptation of Hyung Min-Woo’s “Priest.”

According to Superhero Hype, the new release date for “Priest” will be on May 13, 2011. “Priest” was originally going to be released this year on August 27, but was subsequently pushed back to January 2011 when it was decided that the film will be converted into 3-D.

Based on Min-Woo’s original manga series, “Priest” stars Paul Bettany as a renegade warrior priest who defies the church and teams up with a young sheriff (Cam Gigandet) and a priestess (Maggie Q) to save his kidnapped niece from a group of dangerous vampires. Karl Urban, Lily Collins, Steven Moyer, Brad Dourif and Christopher Plummer round out the cast.

“Priest” is directed by Scott Stewart (“Legion”), a former ILM staffer who replaced Andrew Douglas on the project.

Earlier this year, Stewart spoke with MTV News about how Min-Woo worked closely with him on the adaptation, even though the movie departs from the original story of the manga.

Sony Pictures is doing the old release date shuffle once again, and this time it’s Scott Stewart’s Priest that is getting the bump until later in the year. What a way to treat a servant of God!!!

We reported a while back that the flick was moved from August 20, 2010 to January 14, 2011 in order to have some additional time to punch up the film’s 2D to 3D conversion. Sony announced today, however, that the flick’s latest release date is now March 4th, 2011. Can they get it right? Only time will tell.

The film starring Paul Bettany, Cam Gigandet, and Stephen Moyer is an adaptation of a TokyoPop comic book that is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire. Bettany plays a warrior priest who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.

These vamps always take things so personally! Check out the first ever footage from the flick below, and look for more soon.
