Last year, Kate Beckinsale’s trophy husband, director Len Wiseman, said he had two more Underworld sequels and an Underworld TV show in development, literally six movies and a season. At least one of those three projects is moving forward.
THR says Beckinsale has signed on for a fifth Underworld movie, shooting in Prague this October. It will be directed by Anna Foerster, a second-unit director who was also the director of photography on The Day After Tomorrow and White House Down.
The story will “focus on a new and younger generation of vampires and werewolves who are locked in a seemingly never-ending battle between supernatural races.”
As rumored, Theo James will reprise his character of David (because it was in his contract, which he probably signed before landing Divergent: Insurgent Detergent Merchant).
We can thank the rest of the world for this. Underworld Awakening only turned a profit thanks to a solid turnout in foreign theaters. Apparently, a werewolf-slaying Kate Beckinsale in a leather catsuit translates to any language.
