“Twilight” villain Cam Gigandet won’t be putting away his fangs anytime soon.
The “Twilight” star will be playing a sheriff who is part vampire in the TokyoPop comic book adaptation, “Priest,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The movie takes place in a world ravaged by a war between men and vampires. Cam’s character partners with a warrior priest (Paul Bettany) to save the girl he loves.
In addition to “Priest,” Cam has signed on to appear alongside Emma Stone and Amanda Bynes in “Easy A,” a comedic version of “The Scarlet Letter.”
He is also currently filming the thriller “The Roommate” with Leighton Meester and Minka Kelly.
Cam recently won the MTV Movie Award “Best Fight” for his battle with Robert Pattinson’s character, Edward Cullen, in “Twilight.”
