Kate Beckinsale to throw on her leather suit once again for Underworld 5

05.14.2015

We've known of a fifth entry (be it a proper sequel or a reboot) in the UNDERWORLD franchise for some time now, but it was up in the air as to whether or not series star Kate Beckinsale would return. Even though we've already had an UNDERWORLD film without Beckinsale, I don't think many fans were relishing the idea of another Selene-less outing. Thankfully Kate Beckinsale will once again be throwing on her leather suit as THR has announced that she will be returning as Selene for the fifth installment of the UNDERWORLD series.

We don't know much about the script, which comes to us from Cory Goodman, but it is said to focus on "a new and younger generation of vampires and werewolves who are locked in a seemingly never-ending battle between supernatural races." So business as usual I suppose? UNDERWORLD 5 will be directed by Anna Foerster, who will likely be making her feature directorial debut on the film. Theo James, who starred alongside Beckinsale in UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING, will be returning as well. The sequel will shoot in Prague this October.

The UNDERWORLD films haven't exactly been critical darlings, but they're always been reliable when it comes to pure entertainment value.

Are you looking forward to another Kate Beckinsale led UNDERWORLD film or would you rather they have gone for a full reboot?

Beyond the first one they just blur together, is there really any point to this?

First was the best

None of them has stacked up to the first, so I'm not sure how I feel about a fifth film. BUT I can't argue about how sexy Beckinsale looks in that outfit! I just don't see it working without Speedman though.

Bring back Scott Speedman, or don't bother. I want too see the hybrid.

Completely agree. Having his character briefly appear in Awakening without Speedman playing him was extremely disappointing.

I love these movies. Sure they're cheesy, but I really enjoy them for what they are. If you don't like these you're clearly a sexist who hates women, unite SJW's!!!!!

If she's coming back as the same character, then it's not a reboot. Not that I care, since it'll most likely suck like the previous 4.

Wasn't bothered to see Underworld: Awakening. The vampires don't look all that dangerous. Honestly, I can't believe she's been playing this sexy vixen for 12 years now and she still looks hot.

Each film has be worse than the last, so I don't have much hope for this new film. Much like the Resident Evil series, I never actually meet anyone who enjoys these films, but they some how make just enough money to justify another sequel.

I don't know, I thought the last one with Beckinsale (where she had been captured) was more entertaining (and coherent) than the second one. Of course she wasn't naked in that one so I guess it's a wash....

Can't complain, she always does the character well and looks damn good at the same time. They just really need to give the franchise some bite again (pun intended).
