Underworld 4 (2011 rumored)

The Shield was one of those acclaimed and beloved TV series that had its own audience for sure, but thanks to a spot on cable, didn't exactly blow up into the mainstream the way it might have. But since the show has wrapped, at least, the people behind it have been moving on to even bigger things. John Hlavin, a writer for the series, has signed on to write the for the fourth Underworld film.

According to THR, Hlavin is pretty much the only person attached at this point. The director of the first two films, Len Wiseman, is so far only on board as a producer, and Kate Beckinsale-- incidentally, the director's wife-- isn't sure what she's doing either. Hlavin promised THR that "it's not a prequel, and added, "It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences, meaning that we don't want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements." Hlavin signing on probably means that things are moving forward on this film at last, so look for more news in the coming weeks.
Underworld 2 was alright but Underworld 3, the prequel, was total meh. Here's to hoping U4 has the original characters AND actors.

Well if it has the writer from the tv show The Shield, it'll be a bad ass script. The Shield had ridiculously amazing, if not misogynistic, story lines.

I liked Rise of the Lycans. It explained the entire back-story of the Werewolves and how they came to be etc.......plus they ripped the vampires a new asshole! Was awesome.


Looking forward to this one ~

I don't even care if there is a script or not, as long as I get to look at Kate Beckinsale in tight leather. Or naked. Naked would be good, too.

That's where I saw it from - hence the 'rumored' in the title.

I actually liked the 3rd one too *shrug* The first is still my fav, but as prequels go, I'd say they didn't do too bad. Second one I waver back and forth on how I feel about it LoL

I think the worst thing about the 2nd one is the artsy fartsy love scene.

I don't mind when they keep going with them until they draw it out and the characters aren't the same. Lets just hope it's as good as the others!
