I'm a fan of the Underworld franchise, though not Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which starred Rhona Mitra rather than franchise centerpiece Kate Beckinsale, though Beckinsale returned for 2012's Underworld Awakening, which wasn't half-bad, and now we learn she's coming on for one more as a fifth film has just been greenlit. Titled Underworld: Next Generation, Beckinsale will return as the werewolf hunting vampire Selene with Anna Foerster set to direct. Foerster is best known as Roland Emmerich's cinematographer on the likes of Anonymous and White House Down and is also attached to direct Source Code 2, though I'm not holding my breath for that film's release. The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter that also says Insurgent star Theo James, who appeared briefly as fellow vampire David in Awakening, will reprise his role though James was asked about the possibility of returning earlier this year and told Digital Spy, »

We really prefer the Kate Beckinsale of "Laurel Canyon," "The Last Days Of Disco" and "Snow Angels" to the Hollywood version, because if you focus on “Pearl Harbor” and all those “Underworld” films it’s easy to forget that the English actress can really act when she choose to. But people gotta eat and it’s not every day that there’s a female lead in action/fantasy franchise heading towards its fifth installment. so perhaps in that regards, we can make some kind of concession. It’d been rumored in the past, but THR has confirmed that Beckinsale will return for the currently untitled and fifth installment of the “Underworld” series. Beckinsale mostly sat out of 2009's "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" though she did appear briefly. Once titled “Underworld: Next Generation," evidently that’s a hint at the plot that will pass the torch to apparently younger and hotter stars. »

Actress Kate Beckinsale has finalized a deal to return as the vampire Selene in Lakeshore Entertainment and Screen Gems' new Underworld 5. We last reported on the Underworld 5 back in September, when Underworld Awakening star Theo James signed on to reprise his role as David, although, at the time, it wasn't believed that Kate Beckinsale would be back as Selene. Our earlier report also revealed that the production was seeking two actresses to play brand new female characters.
The sequel has also brought on director Anna Foerster, who will make her feature debut. She previously served as a second unit director for Roland Emmerich's The Day After Tomorrow and 2012, and she also served as his director of photography on 2013's White House Down. She has also directed episodes of Starz's Outlander and CBS' Madam Secretary.
