It appears that one of the more unfortunate side effects of the success of the splendid vampire flick 30 Days of Night is a renewed interest in lesser vampire-oriented franchises. Variety reports today that a Underworld 3: Rise of the Lycans is officially moving forward, sans the one element that made the previous two Underworld movies tolerable: Kate Beckinsale. Billed as a prequel, the movie's story centers on the origins of the centuries-old battle between Vampires and Werewolves. B-list heavyweights Bill Nighy, Michael Sheen and Rhona Mitra are slated to star. What -- they couldn't get Kevin Sorbo? Pity.
