It’s been reported here more than once that Kate Beckinsale, star of the first two “Underworld” movies, won’t be returning to part 3, “Rise of the Lycans”, and that Rhona Mitra will effectively be replacing her in the franchise. Now Kate has confirmed it to IESB — no “Underworld 3” for her, not even a cameo!
Kate Beckinsale revealed today at the junket for her new film, Snow Angels, that she won’t be returning to the Underworld franchise — at least not anytime soon.
Beckinsale did offer that she’d like to maybe one day “pull a Bruce Willis” and return to her character at 50. (How a vampire gets to 50, I have no idea.)
But unfortunately for fans, there’s no cameo appearance in the upcoming third film, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans due next year.
Shame, really, as no one looks better in tight leather than Kate Beckinsale. Seriously, if the girl gave up acting tomorrow and started a clothing line of tight black leather and did all the modeling for it herself, this thing would sell like hotcakes — all to guys, of course.
