Kate Beckinsale Suprised by News of Underworld 4
09.01.09 by Ryan
News of a fourth Underworld broke nearly four weeks ago, much to the surprise of Kate Beckinsale, who starred in both the first and second installments. Underworld 4 is slated to be shot in 3D and will be the first of a new trilogy of Underworld movies, but when Collider asked Beckinsale about Underworld 4, she wasn't aware of the new developments:
God, three whole more! I don't think my daughter needs to see my bottom in rubber for another ten years. But I don't know, I've heard they're talking about a fourth one, but I don't know if that's officially happening or if that's a rumor. As far as I'm concerned, it's just a rumor.
According to studio Screen Gems, it's not a rumor, especially after Underworld: Rise of the Lycans scored $91 million dollars worldwide, almost triple its budget. However ignorant Beckinsale may have been about Underworld 4, her return to the series is still possible:
[Underworld] was always conceived as a trilogy, which I was never going to be in the third one. I think if they came up with an amazing script I wouldn't be adverse to it. But it's not planned or anything.
Well it is now. Underworld 4 will arrive in theaters in January of 2011, with or without Beckinsale.
