14 May 2015 6:32 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In this day and age, where studios view every film as a potential franchise starter, it shouldn.t surprise me when I hear about an unexpected sequel. Still, every time there.s news about a new Underworld movie my first reaction is, "Really?" Well, Underworld 5, also known as Underworld: Next Generation, is indeed happening, and it will once again feature the true face of the franchise, Kate Beckinsale. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Beckinsale is set to reprise her role as the badass vampire Selene, who has appeared as the protagonist in three of the previous four installments.

Kate Beckinsale Returning for Underworld 5; Theo James Attached to Co-Star

14 May 2015 5:37 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Kate Beckinsale is set to reprise her role as the vampire warrior Selene in Underworld 5. Anna Foerster (Outlander) will direct the film, making her the first female director to helm an installment in the female-led action franchise. Theo James, who appeared in 2012's Underworld: Awakening, is also attached to star. The script comes from Cory Goodman, and while plot details are currently under wraps, THR reports the film will focus on a new, younger generation of vampires and werewolves who are still locked in the seemingly endless war between supernatural races. [caption id="attachment_134370" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Sony[/caption] While "new and younger" often leads to pretty grim results, it's interesting that Lakeshore Entertainment and Screen Gems are choosing to move forward with another sequel in the existing franchise rather than rebooting the whole thing altogether, as was reported back in 2014. Given that Goodman is still scripting the film, Underworld 5 looks to be a soft reboot of sorts. »

The Face of an Angel movie review: fiction is stronger than truth

27 March 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

A contemplative film pondering the nature of the difference between reality and fiction, one with resonance beyond the true-crime story it’s kinda sorta about. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly love Michael Winterbottom’s movies

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Let’s be perfectly clear: The Face of an Angel is most definitely not the story of the murder of British student Meredith Kercher, who was killed in Perugia, Italy, in 2007, or the story of her roommate, American student Amanda Knox, who was tried and convicted of the crime along with her then boyfriend. (And then they were acquitted on appeal.)

Well, it is that story. But it isn’t, either. It’s both and neither at the same time.

Okay, look: British filmmaker Michael Winterbottom (The Look of Love, Everyday) is »

Exclusive 1:1 Interview: Insurgent Star Theo James

16 March 2015 3:21 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Theo James is a not only a pretty handsome fellow, he is also a talented actor that can handle a whole lot of action and more. While his past work in Underworld: Awakening and the Divergent series found the actor in daring situations, he continues to take on different types of characters as well. You can find Mr. James in The Inbetweeners Movie, the hit series Downtown Abbey as well as the series Golden Boy. And of course you can catch him in the latest of The Divergent Series »

Paradigm Talent Agency Signs Icelandic Helmer Baldvin Z (Exclusive)

12 March 2015 5:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Paris — Underscoring its ambition to tap into the growing Nordic filmmakers pool, Paradigm talent agency has signed Baldvin Z, an up-and-coming Nordic helmer whose sophomore feature “Life in a Fishbowl” repped Iceland in the foreign-language Oscar race.

On top of becoming Iceland’s highest-grossing local movie in 2014, “Life in a Fishbowl” won a record 12 Edda Awards (Iceland’s top film honor). The movie even surpassed Baltasar Kormákur’s “The Deep,” which won 11 Edda nods in 2013, and outearned all Hollywood movies, including “Guardians of the Galaxy,” at the Icelandic box office.

Set in pre-recession Iceland, the multilayered drama follows three characters leading double lives: a struggling single mother, an ex-footballer fast-tracking in the banking world and a troubled writer who has turned into a full-time drunk.

“Life in a Fishbowl” has already sparked interest to remake it a “True Detective”-inspired series that would introduce a new cast each season.

Theo James drops out of Underworld sequel Next Generation

10 March 2015 8:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Theo James will not star in Underworld: Next Generation.

It was reported last year that the fifth Underworld movie would focus on James's vampire character David, who was introduced in 2012's Underworld: Awakening.

But James, who reprises his role as Four in this month's Insurgent, told Digital Spy that he is now unlikely to return for the sequel.

"No, they have something in the works, but my involvement in it is... I think it's going be very difficult to do that with these [Divergent] movies, and my other commitments," James said.

Kate Beckinsale, who has played Selena in all four of the Underworld movies to date, is also expected to be absent from the fifth instalment, although writer-producer Len Wiseman recently hinted otherwise.

James will begin shooting the final Divergent sequel, Allegiant, this summer, while his upcoming films in 2015 include crime thriller London Fields with Johnny Depp, and drama The Secret Scripture with Rooney Mara. »
