Kate Beckinsale in Underworld

Buried in an international industry article at Variety comes official confirmation that Len Wiseman will indeed be directing Underworld 4 in 3D which we heard rumblings about last August, and also confirms rumors that the story is heading into outer space. However, Bloody-Disgusting is saying that if franchise actress Kate Beckinsale has her way, she'll avoid starring in the sequel, or perhaps may take on a smaller role in an effort to pass the franchise down to one of her real-life daughters (remember that Beckinsale's daughter Lily Mo Sheen already portrayed a younger version of Selene in Underworld: Evolution before).

With only fleeting interest in this series, I can't really express one way or the other how I feel about these ideas, so I'll it leave up to those who are true fans. I think it's pretty meta and even cool that Beckinsale is interested in passing on the franchise she started to her real-life daughter. At the same time, I'm sure there are plenty of people who will be sad to see Beckinsale leave this altogether or end up with a smaller role, whichever actually comes to fruition. But I have to say, Kate Beckinsale in three dimensions doesn't sound bad at all. Moving the story into space, well, that's a whole other issue. What do you think about this?

    ............................In space?....... Come on... I really enjoy the series. Specially Rise of the Lycans. Sure Evolution wasn't great, but They are really reaching now.... Can it even still be called Underworld then?
  • Staatz
    Why don't you just tell us what movies arn't in 3D
  • Janny
    rise of the lycans was in the past and underworld 1/2 were in the present... so to set it in space its either vampires at the international space station or its way off in the future, either way i don't see how you can call it 'Underworld' anything if its in space... Upperworld (in a relative sense) or Outerworld perhaps did the other 3 movies really make that much money? a few studios have folded due to churning out money-grabbing-whore type crap so maybe this will put a nail in lakeshore's coffin

    In space?! That's what I want. That's a movie right there. And in 3D?! Brilliant. Can't wait. I don't care if I'm the only one to see it, it will be cool.
  • Kaiser
    Sounds like Jason X
  • bring it on, Kate will look cool in 3D

    Kate Beckinsale needs a hit see seems to have disapeard from the film world of late. Her las film Whiteout was a load of Rubbish, it was prodictable ( Tom Skerritt ) need i say more. It would be nice to see kate back in the franchise of Underworld 4 3D
  • Anastasios-Antonios Toulkeridis
    I agree with #9. Whiteout was rubbish. I really love Kate Beckinsale. An underworld movie without her is like...i don't know.. anyway.. I like the idea of taking the war to the future!!!
  • JMoney
    her daughter is only 10 and outer space? this sounds made up, is it April 1st or something?
  • Tony
    Outerspace!!! That's what they did with the Hellraiser franchise, and that didn't work! Hopefully it's just a cover up story while they are working on the actual script. Hopefully. However, I'd even sit through Jay Leno just to see her as a guest.
  • Darren
    i agree with #7. sounds ridiculous. what does space have to do with this series? Pretty soon we'll have titles like Underworld VS Alien or Underworld - Lycans Vs Predator. Just something ridiculous. Sometimes people need to know when to let a movie go and focus their attention on something different
  • S
    Hmmm...vampires going into space makes me think of the second Vampite Hunter D movie...
  • dave
    I'll miss the leather suit. Who's with me?
  • Fisherr
    Vampires 7 Lycans in outer space? Sounds bizarre.
  • ChainsawDude
    Who the hell said anything about space? god damn idiots. Underworld series is awesome, i watch them nearly every week and never get bored of them, i really hope they make this and do a good job of it altho i really dont see how the story can continue, unless Seline and micheal have were-vampire kids who go on a rampage :)
  • Absolutley Rocks!
    Underworld is Phenomenal. Legendary..... Can't see the next movie. Maybe Selene and Michael will have a baby. Lexxy
  • Jim Shannon
    as long as she is running about in a PVC suit showing off her tight ass, IM IN
  • Aleksandra

  • Joseph J. Lucas,III
    I want Kate Beckansale's daughter in the movie.
  • Dbond70
    Outer space, I would think, will kill the franchise. Sure, I'll sit my tail in the theater after paying bucks to see it....but I dunno.....
  • bp
    lucian needs to be back an kate has to be in the movie she has to!!!!!!!
  • romual2002
    This article seems pretty bogus.  If it is for real, I am really disappointed.  Please, do not make an outer space Underworld movie.  I rather they just let Underworld go.
