Since playing Sandra Bullock and Tim McGraw’s daughter in The Blind Side, Lily Collins‘ career has really taken off. Collins just nabbed the lead in Relativity Media’s Snow White project, is set to take on the starring role of ‘Clary’ in The Mortal Instruments, and she recently wrapped up work on Abduction opposite Twilight’s Taylor Lautner. Plus, she’ll soon be seen on the big screen in the action-adventure thriller Priest.

The 22 year old actress joined her Priest co-stars Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet at the 2011 WonderCon in San Francisco to talk about the genre-bending film set for release on May 13th. Check out our exclusive interview to see what Collins had to say about playing ‘the screamer’ in Screen Gems’ Priest as well as a little news on Mortal Instruments:

The daughter of pop singer Phil Collins has been making a name for herself in Hollywood. Lily Collins will play Lucy in Screen Gems May 13th 3D post-apocalyptic comic book movie, Priest, alongside Paul Bettany (Legion) and Maggie Q (“Nikita”). The actress, who’s best known for her performance as Sandra Bullock’s daughter in the Oscar-winning The Blind Side, will step into the coveted role of Snow White in Relativity Media’s June 2012 summer release. Collins, who was at WonderCon 2011, talks about Priest, comic books, 3D movies, and video games like Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon in this exclusive video interview.

Priest is an action thriller set in an alternate world — one ravaged by centuries of war between man and vampires. The story revolves around a legendary Warrior Priest (Paul Bettany) from the last Vampire War who now lives in obscurity among the other downtrodden human inhabitants in walled-in dystopian cities ruled by the Church. When his niece (Lily Collins) is abducted by a murderous pack of vampires, Priest breaks his sacred vows to venture out on an obsessive quest to find her before they turn her into one of them. He is joined on his crusade by his niece’s boyfriend (Cam Gigandet), a trigger-fingered young wasteland sheriff, and a former Warrior Priestess (Maggie Q) who possesses otherworldly fighting skills.

Collins will team up with Julia Roberts, who will play the wicked queen plotting to kill Snow White in the new movie. The film will be directed by Tarsem Singh, who was also at WonderCon 2011 showing his new 3D movie, Immortals, starring Superman Henry Cavill.

“Snow White was my favorite fairytale [growing up], and when I first read about the project, I was like, ‘I have to get in on this,'” Collins told People Magazine.

I really lucked out with this one. I asked for a 1:1 with Lily Collins for Priest just because I thought the pretty girl from the action movie would be cool. The day before the interview, she gets the part of Snow White in Tarsem Singh’s next movie.

Lucy (Collins) is the target of Priest’s (Paul Bettany) quest in the movie. She’s kidnapped and he goes back on duty to find her. In the footage screened for WonderCon, she hangs from a speeding train.

Q: What an exciting day you must’ve had yesterday, seeing the Priest footage and landing the Snow White role.

Lily Collins: Yeah, first time in 3D, saw it yesterday, that was shocking. Put those glasses on and I thought that was incredible. I didn’t know what the 3D was going to turn into and it was just so amazing and exciting. Yes, and then found out that I was cast as Snow White so it’s quite the big day.

Q: And it was April 1st, but it’s all true, right?

LC: I know, actually that’s the first thing I said when my team called me and told me. I said, “If this is an April Fools joke, I don’t know what I’ll start to do.” Because I was so excited. I had literally read the day before and met the director the day before and then was cast yesterday, so it was less than 24 hours.

Tonight I was able to see some footage from Scott Stewart’s Priest as Screen Gems premiered a few scenes to a number of WonderCon attendees. Based on the graphic novel of the same name, the film stars Paul Bettany as a renegade warrior priest who goes on the hunt for his niece who’s been kidnapped by vampires. The 3D film also stars Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Karl Urban, and Lily Collins. Hit the jump for my reaction to the footage.

We were shown one full sequence from Priest, as well as with a sizzle reel. The sequence that we saw was dubbed the “night shade” sequence and opens with Bettany and Gigandet going down this large manhole at dusk. Once underground, they encounter what look like albino monks who are presumably servants to the vampires nested below, waiting for the sun to go down. We get a bit of action, as Bettany and Gigandet battle a few of these servants, but the sun starts to set and we get the feeling that shit’s about to go down.

Well, we were right. Night hits, and out crawl the vampires. However, if you’ve seen the trailer, you know the vampires don’t really look much like any other vampires we’ve been presented with. They have no eyes (kind of like The Pale Man in Guillermo del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth), and their mouth is narrow, making way for hook-like fangs. Their body shape is relatively human, but they have large claws on for hands.
