Our man Tristan checked in a bit ago after sitting down with Underworld: Rise of the Lycans star Rhona Mitra with some more details on the sequel, due out on January 23rd, 2009.
Rhona plays Sonja, the daughter of Viktor (Bill Nighy again, thank God). She’s a vampire who falls in love with a Lycan, a romance strictly forbidden by the laws of the bloodsuckers as the Lycans are their slaves. Of course turmoil ensues and pretty soon there is all-out war, which is where we find them in the first film. She did say overall this film has more romance than the previous entries, but hopefully they won’t be spending too much time on that aspect. We just want to see monsters fighting!
Tristan questioned what the weapon of choice would be this time, since the film is a prequel and takes place before guns were around, and she said the vamps mainly work with blades, so expect lots of sword fights, while the Lycans stick to tooth & claw, which should be great to witness.
Be sure to check out our “>previous story on Underworld: Rise of the Lycans for some looks at the wicked costumes we’ll be seeing the monsters in this time around!
