The Underworld franchise is pretty rare in that it actually has been getting better as it goes along. In fact, we’d call that a goddamn anomaly. With a fourth entry on the way, can the wheel keep rolling uphill?
According to THR’s Heat Vision Blog that’s indeed the plan as “The Shield” writer John Hlavin has been hired to pen the fourth installment in Screen Gems/Lakeshore’s franchise.
Hlavin told the site the plot was under wraps, adding, “but I can tell you it’s not a prequel.” He further stated, “It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences, meaning that we don’t want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements.”
Franchise creator Len Wiseman will be serving as a producer with Gary Lucchesi, Tom Rosenberg, and Richard Wright. No word yet on whether or not Kate Beckinsale will reprise her role. Stay tuned.
