The Underworld franchise is barely cold and it is already getting a “reboot.” Lakeshore Entertainment is developing an Underworld reboot after four entries in the vampires vs. werewolves series. According to THR, Cory Goodman will write the script. In March Screen Gems had commissioned a new Underworld movie titled Underworld: Next Generation with Len Wiseman producing. Given the subtitle, the report speculated the new direction could focus on Eve, the vampire/werewolf hybrid daughter of Selene (Kate Beckinsale) and Michael (Scott Speedman). In 2012 Beckinsale said, “I think it’s probably unlikely that I’ll do [another Underworld sequel] but they may do one without me.”
It’s too early to say where exactly the Underworld franchise is heading next, but fans of the series should rest assured a new Underworld movie is likely on the way.
