Priest Lands Second Director at Screen Gems (Source:The Hollywood Reporter)

When Andrew Douglas (The Amityville Horror) exited Priest, originally set to star Gerard Butler, over creative differences the project went silent for a good year or so. Now, The Hollywood Reporter states Scott Charles Stewart is picking up the reins of this horror western and will direct for Screen Gems.

Cory Goodman penned Priest, an adaptation of a TokyoPop comic book which tells of a "warrior priest" tracking a band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece. Michael De Luca, Mitchell Peck and Stars Road Entertainment's Josh Donen are producing.

Stewart also directed Legion - another Screen Gems film slated to bow in early 2010. Prior to cutting his teeth in the director's chair on that picture, he co-founded the visual effects shop Orphanage (Hellboy, Jeepers Creepers II).

Priest Still Alive With New Director

You never really hear about a project falling apart until it begins to make a comeback months or years later. One such example is Priest. A couple years back the adaptation of the comicbook looked ready to go with Andrew Douglas to direct and Gerard Butler to star.

Great combo, right? Well, that didn't work out in the end, and Screen Gems is trying again with Scott Charles Stewart behind the camera.

Scott Charles Stewart to Direct Priest

An adaptation of a TokyoPop comic book, Priest is set in a world ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampire and follows a warrior priest who turns against the church to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.

Scribe Cory Goodman has already wrote the screenplay.

Bringing Stewart on for Priest places Screen Gems even closer to the director. He will make his feature directorial debut with the banner's biblical apocalyptic thriller Legion.

Interesting. I was actually excited to hear that Gerry's name had been attached to this earlier when it was announced.

Not at the moment, but you never know what might develop.
