Rejoice, Men! Kate Beckinsale Confirms Underworld 4 Return

After some back and forth, Kate Beckinsale has made it official: she’s returning to the movie franchise that mde her famous with men everywhere.

Beckinsale will reprise her role of vampire Selene in “Underworld 4″, which is currently in search of a director. After starring in parts one and two, Beckinsale stepped aside when the franchise went the prequel route, with fellow British beauty Rhona Mitra essentially stepping in for her.

Part four will be based on a script by John Hlavin, with revisions by comic book guy J. Michael Straczynski. Nothing is known about the plot as yet, but one thing this is for sure: Selene will have a daughter in the sequel, with an actress currently being sought to play that role.

Production on the sure-to-be visually stimulating sequel is set for March 2011 in Vancouver.
