Karl Urban has been cast as Black Hat, the god of vampires, in Screen Gems’ Priest movie.

Adapted by Cory Goodman from a TokyoPop comic, “Priest” is set in a world ravaged by war between man and vampires. Paul Bettany stars as a warrior priest and vampire fighter who teams with a sheriff (Cam Gigandet) and warrior priestess (Maggie Q) to track down a murderous band of vampires who have kidnapped his niece.

Shooting for the comic book adaptation begins next week, with Scott Stewart directing.
