Gerard Butler is starring in a new horror / western which will be shooting in Sante Fe called PRIEST. Its about a vampire killing priest. Butler told Sci-FI:

"I believe it's Santa Fe, I'm not quite sure. ... This is actually ... a vampire flick, but with a real western feel to it. So it's kind of a really interesting idea," Butler said in an interview at Comic-Con International in San Diego July 22. "And [it will] be a kind of cool thing to be doing that in the desert."

Cory Goodmans script, is based on the Tokyopop graphic novel created by Min-Woo Hyung. Priest is a vampire Western in which a warrior priest disobeys church law by teaming with a sheriff and a priestess to track down a band of renegade vampires who have kidnapped his niece.
