Two Join Father Matthews

Father Matthews is an iconic character in the Ritchie Steven’s Downtown and Shadows universe. He is a vampire priest with a soul who helps to balance good and evil in a world of demons living among people. Like James Bond and Batman, he has been portrayed by a number of different actors in various movie and television projects. The newest actor to step into the role is Chris Pine, who will lead the aptly titled Father Matthews for Flip Brothers Studio.

The movie showcases the origin of the character and looks at who Jacob Matthews was as a human and how he turned into a vampire. The setting is the Salem witch trials of the 1690s and the hysteria of the time plays into Matthews’ beginnings.

Joining Pine in the horror drama is Mark Ruffalo as Father Kent, a mysterious priest who mentors Jacob Matthews and helps set him on his path. Also joining the cast isĀ Emilia Clarke as Jacob’s wife.

The hope by the studio is that the movie will be the first in a series of movies featuring the character, “We’re looking to expand the world of Father Matthews, using the new cast as a clean slate to move forward with different stories. We’ll be jumping through time a bit, the Salem witch trials in this one, the old west in an upcoming film, and the roaring 20s after that. There is so much fun stuff to explore.” Father Matthews is slated to be released in late summer.
