LOS ANGELES – May 13, 2011 -Venture 3D, a leader in the burgeoning 3D conversion market, today announced that it has converted the majority of Screen Gems’ vampire thriller and Korean comics adaptation, Priest, into stereoscopic 3D. Directed by Scott Stewart (Legion), Priest stars Paul Bettany (Iron Man 2) as the undead protagonist, as well as Maggie Q (Nikita) as the Priestess and Cam Gigandet (Easy A, Burlesque) as the Wasteland Sheriff.
