Len Wiseman says Kate Beckinsale will return to Underworld franchise

Len Wiseman has been discussing the future of the Underworld franchise, and has suggested that Kate Beckinsale will be returning to the role of Selene for at least one more outing.

It had previously been reported that Beckinsale would not be on board the fifth episode of the vampire saga, but from the sounds of Wiseman’s comments, that won’t be the case after all...

“There are some characters who we really liked that will be in a kind of a spin-off like we did with Rise Of The Lycans ,” says Wiseman. “Then we have another film in the works with Kate as well.”

It sounds from that as though the next film in the series will be a standalone adventure (with Theo James reported to have been cast in the lead role), before Beckinsale returns for a fully-fledged sequel further down the track.

“And then there’s the television series,” says Wiseman, teasing us still further. Looks like the franchise won’t be disappearing from our screens for some time to come…
