Kate Beckinsale is doing Underworld 3-D despite not wanting to?

02.03.2010

What I liked best about AVATAR's use of 3-D was how you could identify the contours of objects. The shape of things. Should the next installment in the Underworld series, UNDERWORLD 3-D, be anything like that, then at least we'll have the luscious curves of Kate Beckinsale's bangin' bod to ogle behind those thick dorky glasses... right?

Bloody Disgusting, after having confirmed that Beckinsale will indeed be slipping back on the tight black leather, now has word that she's apparently trying to get out of her deal, or at least, minimize her role.

Per Bloody Disgusting: "...sources tell us she's trying to find a way out of the film -- or at least have a smaller role in order to "pass the torch" to one of her kindred (yes, she has not one, but two daughters at this point). With a plan to release the film in theaters on January 21, 2011, production needs to commence soon."

I'm not as well-versed in UNDERWORLD lore as the next dude, but will that mean they're paving the way for a new breed of sexy werewolf-killing wenches? Hopefully! Because really, what else is this franchise offering us apart from the women (and Bill Nighy)?

According to Variety, Beckinsale's husband Len Wiseman will be directing.

As noted above, UNDERWORLD 3-D is set to open January 21, 2011.
Extra Tidbit: Esquire Magazine voted Kate Beckinsale the Sexiest Woman Alive last year. Can't say I disagree.

They should just call it "Kate Beckinsale 3-D" and forget Underworld. More people would go to see it.

I bet this makes for akward dinner convo at her house!

I liked the last film despite the fact that she wasn't in it. I would like to see her in a new one though. Can't believe she's not down since Whiteout didn't do so well.

They need to do a sequel to Rise of the Lycans. Michael Sheen is awesome in these movies, they probably killed him (and his second in command Kevin Grevioux aka Raze ) off too soon

I'm not surprised Kate wants out, the series has never been more than average in my book. I'm surprised people are still into it, must be the same people who actually like Transformers 2 and think Avatar is the greatest movie ever. Hooray for mediocrity!

Beckinsale

I don't think she should leave, I like seeing her in the films even in Evolution where she had the last scene in the film, that made the whole film worth watching, I really loke the films and hope she returns, if she hates these kind of films so much, then why is she off making films that resemble the Under-films? Whiteout for example, I haven't even seen that film and don't plan too it looked pretty boring.

I hope she gets out of it, why destroy a cool series with a gimmick.

Odd

I find it odd that she "doesn't want to be in it" but her husband is directing, that doesn't make sense to me.

Although I am for another set of Underworld movies.

I am a huge fan of this series, with the the third being my personal favorite.

I like the idea that this new will (seemingly) be in the future where she has kids and stuff has moved on. I'd like to see that played up.

Tie the two together...

My suggestion would be to find a way to have both Kate and Rhona be in this. Fanboys unite!

I don't like 3-D movies. I dislike having to wear the glasses. That said I think this movie would have been better received if it were to have come out a year ago, or would have been in the works a year ago. Now it feels as if its just trying to get back in with all the people who are going to see vampire movies now, because of the draw of Twilight.

if anything

They'd probably do the story of her being turned and her rise through the Death Dealer ranks with a younger actress with Beckinsale doing flash backs. That would be my guess.

oh and Bill Nighy kicks all kinds of ass as Viktor.

Ummmm....wow!

I love the first two films as they're the exact opposite of the stupid-ass "Twilight" series since "Underworld" is a vampire/werewolf trilogy with balls and a great story!

On top of that, Kate Beckinsale is a stunning specimen and I'd love to see her in the tight PVC through 3D glasses. It can only enhance what is already perfect.

the first one is OK, the second was a bargain bin dvd movie and the third nobody saw..so why the fuck are we getting a third?

You know creativity in Hollywood is dead when shit like Underworld is getting it's 4th movie.

Rhona Mitra is hotter and...

...this should just be a Rhona Mitra film and not an obvious attempt at Wiseman doing a 3-D film to be in the cool club. Beckinsale has the most sense out of that couple.
