WonderCon Exclusive Interview: Scott Stewart Talks Priest

Coming in somewhat under the radar, Priest managed to earn itself a good deal of buzz at this past weekend’s WonderCon in San Francisco, winning audiences over with a short sizzle reel and maybe the best argument yet for post-converted 3D.

Based on the 16-volume Manga series by Hyung Min-woo, Priest combines elements of horror, science fiction, western, noir and martial arts genres to tell the tale of a post-apocalyptic future torn apart by the war between man and vampire. Paul Bettany is Priest, a religious warrior living in the last human city on Earth who disobeys the rules of his order to go searching for his kidnapped niece (Lily Collins) with her boyfriend (Cam Gigandet).

Director Scott Stewart, who launched his cinematic career as a visual effects artist, made his big-screen debut last year with Legion. Stewart took the time to speak exclusively with SuperHeroHype sister site ShockTillYouDrop.com about bringing the world of Priest to life.
