Kate Beckinsale Returning to Underworld

News that a fourth Underworld movie is preparing to go before the cameras is no surprise. That Kate Beckinsale will be returning as vampiric death dealer Selene might be somewhat surprising given her absence in the third installment that went the prequel route instead.

Deadline Hollywood has the breaking news regarding Kate Beckinsale’s return to the Underworld franchise:

Kate Beckinsale has signed on for a fourth installment of Underworld. The new pic has been written by John Hlavin with a rewrite by J. Michael Straczynski. No director yet. Screen Gems, which distributed the first three, is back for the fourth. Production starts March in Vancouver.

That’s all there is for the moment. Expect more details imminently now that the initial news has broken.

So what are the over/under odds that the next announcement regarding Underworld 4 will be that it’s being filmed in 3D?

    Oh I fo’sho see a 3D movie coming up but I really hope it doesn’t one thing I can say for the UW movies ir, the people behind them seem to be more in to the plot and the story then just making money for the sake of making it…

    Though I hope they go back to the time we’re in now of course I think the Micheal Selena story alone is a little exsausted but I still am pretty exsited for a new instalment….

    Yes, yes, yes. One thousand times yes.

    Oh yeah, hopefully the movie is pretty good, too. I actually do like the series.
