According to Hollywood Reporter, Asian American actress Maggie Q is joining Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet in “Priest,” a horror Western adaptation of a TokyoPop manga with the same name.

The “Live Free or Die Hard,” “Mission: Impossible III” and “Gen-Y Cops” actress will reportedly fill out a trio of vampire hunting priests/priestess. Characters that are not part of the original plot to Min-Woo Hyung’s manga.

Director Scott Stewart who works with Bettany in his feature debut “Legion” calls “Priest” a mix between “The Searchers” and “Blade Runner.” And while it may not have any real vampires, according to Gigandet, there are “vampire-esque creatures.” (Hey, can’t blame Sony for jumping on the vampire bandwagon!)

“Priest” is set in a world ravaged by war between man and vampires and follows a warrior priest (Bettany) who teams with a sheriff (Gigandet) to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.
