Underworld 3 a go

10.26.2007

I wasn't the biggest fan of the UNDERWORLD movies (aside from seeing Kate Beckinsale in leather and cavorted with half-naked women) but I understand there's a pretty decent sized following. They've made some decent cash for the studio so it's a no-brainer that UNDERWORLD 3 was coming. And it is. Patrick Tatopoulos has signed on to direct UNDERWORLD 3: THE RISE OF THE LYCANS (terrible title, BTW) for Screen Gems with Bill Nighy, Michael Sheen and Rhona Mitra set to star. Tatopoulos, if you'll remember, was the FX wizard who created the creature effects for both of the films (among many, many others). UNDERWORLD 3 will be a prequel that will trace with war between the lycans and the vampires. Nighy and Sheen will reprise their roles from previous UNDERWORLD films while Mitra will play the pseudo-Beckinsale role; a vampire who falls in love with Sheen's Lucian. Speaking of Beckinsale, she has said she's done with the franchise for the most part but could perhaps make a cameo (hubby Len Wiseman is producing the sequel). Filming on UNDERWORLD 3: TROTL is expected to begin next January in New Zealand.

Extra Tidbit: Sheen has a daughter with Kate Beckinsale. So Wiseman directed his wife and her ex-husband in the two previous films...

Ouch! No Kate? This would have to be one badass, action-packed movie to get over that over glaring problem.

No Beckinsale is disappointing, but in my opinion, Viktor and Lucian were the best characters anyway. Looks like the third movie will be loosely based on the book Underwold: Blood Enemy--which was a good read.

If memory serves correct, Patrick Tatopoulos also directed Starship Troopers 2. Yeah, probably won't be seeing this. I have enough bad memories of ST2.

my god

Let it die. And I don't mean to be "UNdead". I mean, just leave the horrid second movie as the end of the lackluster "franchise". Yuck.

Hmmm....

Rhona Mitra better be in a tight leather outfit...

With that said, I really haven't been to big on the franchise, as the storytelling isn't as tight as it should be. However, I may see #3 out of curiosity...{and for Rhona Mitra}.

hmm

The director, title and plot smells like straight-to-dvd kind of crap...but Bill Nighy and Rhona Mitra may be the silver lining?

No Kate Beckinsale? Well damn. I really enjoyed the first flick and merely liked the second one, and it was definitely a huge plus to see Beckinsale running around in tight leather. And while I'm interested in the backstory and such...it's not the same without Beckinsale.

The point is, its been a long time since we've seen a decent medieval fantasy movie with dark battle scenes (not intended for 14-year olds, with some rehashed story about a kid who's destined to save the world ..ugh).

I a agree with theotherness. Without Beckinsale and Wisemen i have next to no interest in what will most likely be a poor sequal
