Min-Woo Hyung's "Priest" the movie!?!!?

So it's news about a month old, but still... apperently some one's decided to make Priest (the manga based on Blood) into a movie. Good? Bad?

I guess it's best to note that there's no final word yet, so it may all be smoke and mirrors. Personaly I think it's funny, I'd like to see how this turns out. I wonder if they might try to finish bringing the Priest (now Rush Online) MMORPG to the US.

Its news to me I didn't even know a comic based on Blood existed.
But I don't care for Japanese anamation (at least not what I've seen of it)

Well, if the director can keep up the style the manga has, I'm all for it!

Animes tend not to. I guess it is the closest thing to a Blood movie we'll get.

I'm fiarly certian they are taking alot of liberties already, unless Mr. Langlois has the whole plot wrong. I've yet to see any mention of vampires in the manga. Plenty of fallen angels and zombified towns, but nothing about vampires.

Boss429: I it's going to be live action rather than anime.

AAAHAHAHAHAHAHHA Sam Raimi is named to be one of the producers! I guess the whole Evil Dead -> Blood -> Priest thing has come full circle.

Well, it's heavily influenced by Blood. The story wanders as the characters he introduces develop, but the early stuff (expeicaly #3) is verry Blood-like. It still has the over all plot of "a p!$$ed off dude taking down a god/demon"

At least he gave credit.

"JF: When did you first begin work on Priest? How did you come up with the concept of combining Spaghetti Westerns with gothic horror?

M-WH: Priest was conceived from Blood, an American PC game developed by Monolith Productions, Inc. The idea of a resurrected zombie as the protagonist, totally fascinated me. Initially, I took the subject matter and began writing a novel, then later decided to draw it instead. In order to preserve the initial charm I experienced from the game's character, I avoided delving further into the character's imaginary world. From an early age, I've always loved Gothic Horrors and Spaghetti Westerns, and Priest was very conducive to both genres. It was rather an easy harmonization of both genres, and they naturally and seamlessly seeped into Priest. (Of course, the game Blood was also created with a horror/western plot. Due to various reasons, both Blood and Priest are inseparably related.) "
