Gerard Butler is to star in Priest.

Gerard Butler is in talks to play a warrior priest who hunts down vampires in a new film by Andrew Douglas, who made his debut on last year's remake of The Amityville Horror.

Provisionally titled Priest, the film is described as a post-apocalyptic horror western and is based on a comic book by Min-Woo Hyung.

The film is being developed by Sony and has raised eyebrows in some quarters because the studio has only recently given the green light to another comic book-based vampire tale, 30 Days of Night, which is set to star Josh Hartnett.
