Cam Gigandet stars in Priest

Twilight's Bad Vampire Cam Gigandet will play a vampire once again (ok half vampire) in Priest with co-star Paul Bettany reports The Hollywood Report.

Cam Gigandet will star opposite Paul Bettany in "Priest," a horror Western
that Scott Stewart is directing for Screen Gems. 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 (Bettany) who turns
against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece. Gigandet plays a young wasteland sheriff who is part vampire. He
partners with Bettany to save the girl he loves, the niece. That latter part has
yet to be cast. Michael De Luca and Stars Road Entertainment's Josh Donen are
producing along with Mitchell Peck.Culpepper and senior vp production Eric
Paquette are overseeing the project. The "Priest" deal follows on the heels of
Gigandet joining the cast of Screen Gems' "Easy A," a comedic re-imagining of
"The Scarlet Letter," starring Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes. Gigandet is playing
a third-time senior in high school who still hasn't graduated. Gigandet, repped
by WME Entertainment, is filming Screen Gems' thriller "The Roommate" with
Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly. The actor is coming off of winning an MTV
Movie Award for best fight, awarded for his work in "Twilight." Gigandet won the
award the previous year for "Never Back Down," making him the only actor to win
it in back-to-back years.
