WonderCon 2011: “Priest” Roundtable With Director Scott Stewart and Stars Paul Bettany, Lily Collins, and Cam Gigandet

Screen Gems releases the sci-fi action thriller Priest in 3D on May 13th, so some of the cast and crew were at WonderCon to show off some footage (which I missed) and to do roundtable interviews. After the break, hear said interviews.

Priest is set in an alternative future in which vampires and Priests are constantly at war. It’s been a generation since the last Vampire War, and now a veteran Warrior Priest must stop another one from starting, no matter who tries to stop him. Below is the audio for our interviews with the stars and director, as well as quick guide to find the person you may want to hear.
