'Twilight' & 'True Blood' Actors Team up for new Vampire Movie

Stephen Moyer of HBO's "True Blood" and Cam Gigandet of 'Twilight' have taken on roles in the thriller movie 'Priest' but this time Moyer plays the mortal, Variety reports.

Based on the TokyoPop comic book, the movie is set in a turbulent time period, ravaged by wars between vampires and humans. The film follows a priest (Paul Bettany) who rebels against the church to avenge a group of murderous vampires who have kidnapped his niece.
Gigandet's character helps the priest because he is in love with his niece, while Moyer plays the brother of the clergyman.

On "True Blood," Moyer plays a blood sucking yet compassionate vampire who falls in love with a telepathic Southern girl named Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin). In 'Twilight,' Gigandet played the merciless vampire James who hunts the protagonist Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart). 'Priest' is to begin shooting this week.
