Lakeshore Entertainment Will Reboot UNDERWORLD


Eleven years doesn't really seem too far  off when recalling actress Kate Beckinsale's portrayal of a vampire warrioress in director Len Wiseman's 2003 hit, Underworld, on top of its fourth installment, Underworld: Awakening, just two years ago. However, the franchise has had some success over the years, and there was once a time when a then-skeptic Beckinsale may have wanted to a return for a possible fifth addition to the Vampire V. Lycan war/romance saga.

Nevertheless, Lakeshore Entertainment is ordering a complete revival of the franchise once again, with Priest scribe Cory Goodman providing the screenplay for the new reinterpretation of the sci-fi horror saga, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The previous four films began as the brainchild of author and creator, franchise co-star and actor Kevin Grevioux, with Beckinsale principally starring in the franchise along with actress Rhona Mitra in the epic story of forbidden love amidst a long and enduring war between royal vampire families and werewolf clans. Actors Michael Sheen, Bill Nighy, and Scott Speedman also played key roles.

The sequel, Underworld: Evolution (2006), the prequelized third, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009) and Evolution's follow-up, Underworld: Awakening (2012), were modest hits worldwide after the success of the first film, ultimately banking on its worldwide gross of well-over $450 million.  Wiseman also directed the second film, as well as produced all three follow-ups with Gary Lucchesi and Tom Rosenberg, who are also returning to produce the new movie.

Stay tuned for more info!

  1. Underworld 1 was very good. even though the fights were crap and cheesy.
    i liked the movie for its: story, settings, editing, camera, style.
    the final fight was the only good thing about it.

    it does need a reboot and hopefully the fight would be good.
