Priest Movie Not what it seems
The synopsis for the upcoming Priest movie is all wrong. The current synopsis has us believing the graphic novel by Min-Woo Hyung is about a outlaw priest who goes against the order or elders and teams up with a half vampire sheriff to hunt down the vamps who kidnapped his niece. While the names seem to be write on the money the story however is nothing like that of the graphic novel. There are no vampires in the entire story, so for your pleasure here is a correct synopsis for Priest.
Many believe that Min-Woo's manga graphic novel Priest is set to be made. While this is true I'm afraid that the synopsis of the movie is almost entirely wrong.
"In the frontier of the American west, a veil of evil threatens to engulf humanity. Servants of the fallen archangel Temozarela are paving the way for their dark lord’s resurrection.
One man stands in the way of the apocalypse—Ivan Isaac's—a fallen priest who sold his soul to the devil Belial for the power to fight evil. Armed with a wicked blade and silver bullets, Ivan will give the heretics a baptism of blood in his pilgrimage for humanity’s redemption."
as stated by Comicmonster.com, (so far the only website to get it right.)
Now for the bad news, the script is not going to be changed so the story we are getting is actually a comic from the late 80s early 90s which strangely resembles the synopsis given by almost every website and magazine that has done any commenting on the upcoming film. Do the homework read both comics then tell me which one would be the best make for Hollywood. One final fact about Priest is that the story is far from over so how would we benefit from seeing this movie at all. I'm hoping enough people get together and somehow change the mind of Hollywood to either change the names of the charcters or simple change the script to make the movie more like the comic, but for now it seems we will get a combination of two comics into one.
