Kate Beckinsale Might Not Be Done With Underworld, Here.s The Latest

14 October 2014 7:14 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Selene's days aren't up yet. Despite rumblings that the Underworld franchise would barrel on without her, Kate Beckinsale is attached to continue playing the gorgeous vampire warrior for at least one more film. And there's a lot more to come in the wave of Underworld franchising. Screen Rant reports Len Wiseman dropped details on the expansion of the Underworld universe while he was at New York Comic Con promoting his hit television series Sleepy Hollow. Wiseman, who helmed Underworld and Underworld: Evolution and happens to be married to Kate Beckinsale, revealed that Underworld has three branches of expansion in the works, a "soft reboot," another Beckinsale-fronted feature, and a television series. At this time, all three are in development. Wiseman declined to comment as to which might roll into production first. Word of an Underworld reboot first hit last August, when the saga's most recent entry (Underworld Awakening) ended up »

Underworld Sequel Starring Kate Beckinsale and TV Series In Development

13 October 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

We recently reported that Lakeshore Entertainment is developing an Underworld series spin-off film starring the vampire David from Underworld: Awakening, but writer/director Len Wiseman recently revealed that more projects are in development, including another Underworld film following Kate Beckinsale’s Selene and a TV series set in the vampire versus Lycan universe.

At New York Comic Con this weekend, IGN interviewed writer/director Len Wiseman (2003’s Underworld, 2006’s Underworld: Evolution) and asked him about the future of the Underworld franchise. Wiseman said that in addition to the David-centric Underworld: Next Generation (a film that takes its own path from the main series storyline in a way similar to 2009’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), another Underworld film starring Kate Beckinsale as Death Dealer Selene is in the works.

Wiseman went on to make another big reveal when he mentioned that an Underworld TV series is in development. No official »

Kate Beckinsale returning for Underworld sequel, TV series also in development alongside spin-off movie

13 October 2014 2:58 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in August it was reported that Lakeshore Entertainment is developing a spin-off to the main Underworld series, which was later revealed to be titled Underworld: Next Generation. Now Underworld and Underworld: Evolution director Len Wiseman has told IGN at the New York Comic Con that another sequel is in the works, which would see Kate Beckinsale returning as Selene.

“There’s a few things that are being developed right now. There’s some characters that we really like that’s kind of more of a spin-off of some of the characters like we did with Rise of the Lycans, and another film is being developed with Kate possibly as well, and then there’s a television series as well. So it’s all kind of expanding that universe.”

Asked which would arrive first, Wiseman responded by stating: “You tell me. Everything’s in development.”

Theo James Taking Over 'Underworld'

12 September 2014 1:14 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Last month it was announced that the Underworld franchise would be getting a reboot. However, it looks like the fifth film will be more of sequel, starring Theo James, who is probably best known as the male star of Divergent. James previously played a vampire named David in 2013's Underworld: Awakening, and it looks like he's set to reprise his role, only this time as the franchise's lead.

THR reports that the next film will be "an expansion of the existing universe" rather than a reboot of the series, as initially thought.

Kate Beckinsale won't be returning. James will instead star opposite two new actresses. Cory Goodman (Priest) is writing the script, and the team hopes to start shooting next spring.

Directed by Len Wiseman, Underworld was released in 2003. The movie followed the adventures of Kate Beckinsale's Selene, a vampire "Death Dealer" caught in the war between vampires and Lycans. »

Theo James to Star in Fifth ‘Underworld,’ Kate Beckinsale Won’t Return

11 September 2014 4:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lakeshore Entertainment has signed “Divergent” star Theo James to star in the fifth film in its vampires-versus-werewolves franchise.

Kate Beckinsale, however, will not return for her Selene role after starring in all previous films.

Lakeshore is ramping up development on the yet-to-be-titled film and aiming to shoot in the spring. James starred as a new character and vampire ally to Beckinsale’s character in the fourth film,  “Underworld: Awakening.”

Lakeshore toppers Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing.

The franchise launched in 2003 with “Underworld,” directed by Len Wiseman and starring Beckinsale, followed by 2006’s “Underworld: Evolution,”  2009’s “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans” and 2012’s “Underworld: Awakening,” which grossed $160 million wordlwide.

James starred as Four in “Divergent” opposite Shailene Woodley, and in the second film “Insurgent,” which is in post-production and will open in March. The two “Allegiant” films will also star James and open in 2016 and 2017.

James is repped by Wme and Markham, »

Two Years After the Release of the Last Movie, Underworld is Being Rebooted

28 August 2014 9:41 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Believe it or not, a reboot of the Underworld franchise is now said to be in the works. Writer and director Len Wiseman kicked off the series with the first instalment back in 2003, and that would be followed up by Underworld: Evolution in 2006, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans in 2009 and Underworld: Awakening in 2012.

The series starred Kate Beckinsale as Selene, a vampire “Death Dealer” who found herself caught in the middle of a war between vampires and Lycans. Despite never finding much success with critics, each of the movies was reasonably successful at the box office and clearly good enough for Lakeshore Entertainment to confidently move ahead with another. A reboot so soon after the last one is surprising to say the least…it’s only been two years!

Regardless, Cory Goodman (Priest) has been hired to pen the script, with Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi producing. Goodman »

Vampires and Lycans and Reboots, Oh My! 'Underworld' Set for a Revamp

28 August 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Just two years shy of its last theatrical outing, the "Underworld" series is getting a reboot.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the vampire franchise, which launched actress Kate Beckinsale into a successful action career, is getting an update from Lakeshore Entertainment. Screenwriter Cory Goodman has been pegged to pen the script.

The "Underworld" films performed well at the global box office, raking in a total of $458.2 million. The first flick was released in 2003, followed by "Underworld: Evolution" in 2006, "Underworld: Rise of the Lycans" in 2009, and the last installment, "Underworld: Awakening," released in 2012.

Goodman previously wrote the script for 2011 supernatural thriller "Priest," which starred Paul Bettany as a man who hunts vampires (a credit that should help him with the vampires vs. werewolves theme of the "Underworld" franchise). He also wrote the screenplay for the upcoming Vin Diesel flick "The Last Witch Hunter."

‘Underworld’ Reboot Announced; ‘Priest’ Writer Attached

28 August 2014 7:35 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

2003 saw an unlikely milestone emerge in the form of the supernatural horror/action genre-blend franchise, Underworld. The vampires vs. werewolves flick featured an untested creative team (Len Wiseman and Kevin Grevioux) shepherding a collection of unlikely action stars, which included theatrically trained actors like Michael Sheen (Masters of Sex) and Bill Nighy (Harry Potter); a pretty-boy leading man in Scott Speedman (Felicity); and Kate Beckinsale, who – at that point – seemed as far from an action star as one could be.

Despite the unlikely players in the mix, Underworld‘s genre-blend premise sold with audiences, thus launching a 2006 sequel (Underworld: Evolution), a 2009 prequel (Rise of the Lycans) and a 3D soft reboot in 2012 (Underworld: Awakening); not to mention sister films ...

An Underworld reboot is in the works

28 August 2014 2:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The vampire/Lycan war wages on, as THR reports that Lakeshore Entertainment is moving forward with a reboot of the Underworld franchise, only two years after the latest installment of the series.

Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi will produce along with Underworld and Underworld: Evolution director Len Wiseman, while Priest and The Last Witch Hunter scribe Cory Goodman will pen the new screenplay.

Details about the reboot are scarce, though it’s being reported that the new film may be called Underworld: Next Generation and focus on Eve, the daughter of original franchise protagonists Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and Michael (Scott Speedman). If true that means that the film won’t be a typical “reboot,” and may exist within the continuity of the previous installments, though both Speedman and Beckinsale are not expected to return.

As always, we’ll have more information on the Underworld reboot as it becomes available. »

'Underworld' Franchise Headed For A Reboot

28 August 2014 1:51 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

It's been two years since the last Underworld film. Normally we would say that not enough time has passed to qualify a whole franchise for a reboot. But in this day and age, studios seem to be pressing the reboot button almost immediately after the final film in a franchise leaves the theater. With that said, let us announce that Lakeshow Entertainment is rebooting the entire vampire action franchise Underworld. Cory Goodman (Priest, The Last Witch Hunter) has been hired to write the first script.

Underworld, directed by Len Wiseman, was released in 2003. The franchise starred Kate Beckinsale as Selene, a vampire "Death Dealer" caught in the war between vampires and Lycans. The franchise also included 2006's Underworld: Evolution, 2009's Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and 2012's Underworld: Awakening.

Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg will produce the new film for Lakeshore. At the moment there's no details on what story will be told. »

Underworld franchise to be rebooted

27 August 2014 11:03 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The horror action franchise starring Kate Beckinsale is to be given the reboot treatment. Expect a new Underworld movie soon...

Notable for their slow-mo, acrobatic action and Kate Beckinsale as a vampire in black Pvc, the Underworld franchise began just over a decade ago. The original Underworld, released in 2003, wasn't a blockbuster in the Marvel sense of the word, but it launched a memorable action heroine and spawned three sequels: Underworld: Evolution (2006), Rise Of The Lycans (2009 - actually a prequel, technically speaking) and Awakening (2012).

To date, the franchise has made a shade over $450m - not a bad sum, given that they didn't cost a huge amount to make in the first place.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series is set to be rebooted, with Cory Goodman (who previously wrote the 2011 film Priest, which had a similar action-horror atmosphere) in charge of writing the script. Presumably, the success of »

Underworld Is Getting A Reboot, Because Why Not?

27 August 2014 8:25 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After only four entries, the Underworld series will be getting a reboot courtesy of Lakeshore Entertainment. The Hollywood Reporter tells us that Cory Goodman (Priest) is set to pen the script and Len Wiseman, who helmed the original Underworld and Underworld: Evolution, will be producing.

Plot details are scarce, but it’s being reported that the film might be titled Underworld: Next Generation and could focus on Eve, who is the daughter of the protagonists from the original series, Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and Michael (Scott Speedman). Not much else is known about the reboot other than that, but Beckinsale and Speedman are not expected to return.

The idea of rebooting Underworld will likely shock most, as the last film in the series, Underworld: Awakening, only hit theatres two years ago. It’s kind of crazy when you think about it, actually. It’s not like people are exactly clamouring for more Underworld. »

'Underworld' Reboot Is in Development

27 August 2014 6:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After 11 years and four movies, Lakeshore Entertainment is rebooting the Underworld franchise, hiring Cory Goodman (Priest) to write the script. No story details were given for the reboot.

Kate Beckinsale starred as the vampire "death dealer" Selene in the first Underworld, which debuted in 2003 and followed the war between the vampires and their sworn enemies, the lycans, a.k.a. werewolves.

The actress returned for the sequel Underworld: Evolution in 2006, although she did not star in the 2009 prequel Underworld 3: The Rise of The Lycans, which featured Michael Sheen and Rhona Mitra. 2012's Underworld Awakening was the final feature within the franchise, which has earned $458.2 million worldwide through all four movies.

Lakeshore Entertainment's Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing, but there is no production schedule set at this time.

Cory Goodman's other feature writing credits include Apollo 18 and upcoming projects such as The Last Witch Hunter, »

Oh Look, Underworld Is Getting Rebooted, How Nice

27 August 2014 5:39 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Looks like the day has finally arrived in which Kate Beckinsale no longer has to squeeze into a dominatrix outfit (nothing wrong with that) to play the gun-toting vampire, Selene. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lakeshore Entertainment has decided to reboot their very lucrative Underworld franchise. They've hired Cory Goodman to pen the reboot. Goodman is responsible for writing Paul Bettany's Priest (2011) and Vin Diesel's upcoming film, The Last Witch Hunter, which is current in production.  The first Underworld film, directed by Len Wiseman and starring Kate Beckinsale, was released in 2003. Playing the strong vampiress Selena made Beckinsale into a bankable action star, and three films followed in 2006 (Underworld: Evolution), 2009 (prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) and 2012 (Underworld: Awakening). »

Michael Sheen’s role in Masters of Sex resulted in his nomination for Best Actor in a Television Series this year, and you can see what all the fuss is about this Monday 28th July when the first season hits DVD in the UK.

Sheen plays Dr William Masters who, along with Lizzy Caplan’s Virginia Johnson, is a pioneering researcher in the field of human sexuality. The show was successful enough to draw a second season order, which is underway on Us TV as we speak.

This is just the latest in a line of successful roles for rising star Michael Sheen, who is becoming one of a number of new British stars successful in Hollywood. He has had numerous memorable roles, and here we take a look at six of the best…



In 2002′s Heartlands, Sheen plays Colin Lawes, a mild-mannered man running a newsagent with wife Sandra. »
