Late last year, "Priest" actor Cam Gigandet regaled us with tales of the "unbelievable" weapons his character wields in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Min-Woo Hyung's popular manhwa series.

When MTV News sat down with Gigandet and his "Priest" co-stars Maggie Q and Karl Urban, the "Twilight" alum turned the conversation back to the gun his character uses in a quest to rescue his girlfriend from renegade vampires.

"They designed and built it, and it was literally, ten pounds," Gigandet told MTV News. Read More...

The "Iron Fist" movie is on the way with "xXx" screenwriter Rich Wilkes on board to tackle the script. But even as the project moves forward, some big questions remain — namely, who's going to direct the film and, just as importantly, who's going to star as Danny Rand?

In today's edition of "Secret Identity," we're suggesting five names that Marvel should consider for their forthcoming big screen martial arts epic! Read More...

Director Scott Stewart has spoken highly of the "Twilight" and "True Blood" cast members he assembled for the adaptation of Hyung Min-Woo's "Priest." Together with his co-stars Maggie Q and Karl Urban at San Diego Comic-Con this week, Cam Gigandet returned the compliment, even if Stewart's direction proved to be challenging on occasion.

"The world Scott created is kind of unlike any other," Gigandet told MTV News. "Sometimes it was hard to visualize what he had in his mind, but I've seen clips, and its unbelievable. ... Just to work with all of these people, they're such an amazing cast. I didn't have any doubts [about taking on another vampire-related role]." Read More...

Cam GigandetAround these parts, we’re really looking forward to “Priest,” the currently-shooting adaptation of Min-Woo Hyung’s graphic novel series about mankind’s battle against fallen angels, starring such notables as Paul Bettany, Stephen Moyer, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, Christopher Plummer, Brad Dourif and Madchen (Loved you on "Twin Peaks!") Amick.

It also stars one of our recent on-screen faves, the fast-rising Cam Gigandet—and when we caught up with him recently, he said the flick was well-armed for success.

“I have very cool weapons,” he said of his character Hicks, who he has described as a boy “trying to become a man.” “I have an unbelievable knife; I have an unbelievable gun.” Read More...

Cam GigandetOne thing I’ve noticed over the course of my life is that chicks dig dudes on motorcycles; one thing I’ve noticed over the last year or so is that chicks also dig Cam Gigandet. So, if the team behind the currently-shooting “Priest” adaptation are concerned about attracting the female demographic, some info I got recently from Cam makes me think they have no need to worry.

“Right now I’m shooting a movie with Paul Bettany that’s called ‘Priest,’ which is going to be an unbelievable film,” he explained when he stopped by the MTV studio last week. “The sets are just unbelievable—and we ride around on motorcycles.”

With any luck, Gigandet joked, not only will he and Bettany look cool as they channel their inner Wild Hogs, but they’ll also look like they know what they’re doing. Read More...

Cam GigandetProduction on "Priest" has been ramping up lately with plenty of casting announcements, including the recent news that "True Blood" star Stephen Moyer would play a role in the film. Now, we're getting our first glimpse at two of the movie's main characters, including "Twilight" actor Cam Gigandet.

Gigandet and Paul Bettany both make their first appearances in a slew of set photographs from JFX Online. While the images reveal very little about the film's actual plot, they provide incredibly detailed looks at both characters and the types of clothing we can expect to see from them.

First up is Gigandet's character. Based on the information we know so far, Gigandet will not be playing a vampire, but rather a small town sheriff whose girlfriend has been abducted by a gang of vampires led by Black Hat, the villain played by Karl Urban. Based on these images, it certainly looks like Gigandet's getting into the law-enforcing groove. Read More...

Priest"Priest," starring Paul Bettany of "The Da Vinci Code" and "Twilight" star Cam Gigandet, is set to debut in theaters across the globe in just over a year. Lest you think an August 2010 release date is unrealistic for the manga adaptation, Sony Pictures is providing proof that "Priest" is far from in need of a prayer.

The official website for "Priest" is now online, debuting the very first look at the film's star Paul Bettany as the titular priest. While a first look at Gigandet has yet to arrive, this initial shot of Bettany is enough to inform prospective viewers that this vampire tale is a far cry from the comparatively tame "Twilight" franchise.

Last week, reports surfaced that "Twilight" star Cam Gigandet would be playing a vampire on screen again in a live-action adaptation of "Priest," a popular manga series published by TokyoPop.

But hold the phone, "Twilight" fans, it appears that tales of his blood-sucking role have been greatly exaggerated. During a press event for his upcoming film "The Roommate," the actor said there's been a slight misunderstanding when it comes to his "Priest" character.

"I think there was some miscommunication that I was a vampire," Gigandet told MTV News, "but that's not the case. I'm not a vampire." Read More...

Cam GigandetWe're certainly disappointed that "Twilight" trumped both "The Dark Knight" and "Iron Man" at the MTV Movies Awards, but even we can't deny the rabid fascination with the vampire romance franchise -- though it looks like a particular vampire favorite has found some interest in the comic book world himself.

Unfortunately, ladies, we're not talking about Robert Pattinson. After all, he has a good thing going on as Edward Cullen. Instead, "Twilight" villain Cam Gigandet will make the leap onto the paneled page with a starring role in "Priest" based on the TokyoPop comic book series, says The Hollywood Reporter -- and he's taking his blood-sucking sensibilities with him.
