It was recently announced that Screen Gems has begun development on a big screen adaptation of TokyoPop's Priest.
A screenplay has already been written by Cory Goodman who also worked on the upcoming Kung Fu
and The Brood.
Scott Charles Stewart has been hired to direct. Stewart directed the upcoming film Legion
and has most of his experience in visual effects.
In the frontier of the American West, a veil of evil threatens to engulf humanity. Servants of the fallen archangel Temozarela are paving the way for their dark lord's resurrection. One man stands in the way of the apocalypse: Ivan Isaacs, a fallen priest who sold his soul to the devil Belial for the power to fight evil. Armed with a wicked blade and silver bullets, Ivan will give the heretics a baptism of blood in his pilgrimage for humanity's redemption.
