One of the reasons Urban treasured the opportunity of the role of Black Hat in Priest was that the film crosses the boundaries of numerous genres. Priest is equal parts vampire flick, horror film, Western, suspense thriller and love story.
Urban's character in Priest is the most dangerous threat to mankind since the war against vampires began.
The film sets the tone early on that humans and vampires have done battle for centuries and it was only when the church discovered an army of priests with supernatural powers, that the tide of war turned towards the humans.
Now, with Black Hat anchoring a new vampire assault on humans, his hybrid character of priest and vampire could spell the end for mankind. It's up to the last remaining fighters, Priest (Paul Bettany) and Priestess (Maggie Q), to turn the tide.
