The Underworld movie franchise isn’t over yet.
Just last Thursday, the producers announced in a press release that there will be a fourth movie, and not only that. The release also confirmed that Kate Beckinsale is returning as the lead character Selene, which this time now has a daughter.
There are still no news about Underworld 4’s story and its full cast. The filmmakers haven’t even named a director for the film.
According to Cinema Blend, only the movie’s script, written by John Hlavin (The Shield) with revisions by J. Michael Straczynski (Changeling, Babylon 5, Ninja Assassin), is ready at this time, and the producers are seeking an actress who will play as Selene’s daughter. Screen Rant also reports that the continuing battle between vampires and werewolves will be shot in 3D.
Filming will start in March 2011 in Vancouver, and Underworld 4 is expected to be released in January 2012. (Other source: Star Life Talk and Gossip)
