The blokes at Bloody-Disgusting have gotten their hands on the plot for Screen Gems’ upcoming “Underworld 4”, as well as the title. The film will be going under the banner of “Underworld 4: New Dawn”, though I’m sure the “4” part will be missing. The fourth movie will return Kate Beckinsale (who skipped out on the franchise’s part 3) as lycan killer Selene, a vampire with an insane ability to look really, really good in tight pleather.
PLOT REMOVED BECAUSE SONY APPARENTLY THINKS THEY HAVE COPYRIGHT ON THIS, TOO. I SHIT YOU NOT. BLOODY-DISGUSTING STILL HAS IT, THOUGH, SO GO THERE TO READ THE PLOT.
Huh. So Selene gets a daughter (from her coupling with Michael (Scott Speedman) from the first two movies, we assume), but, uh, where does Michael fit into all this? The last time we saw the happy couple, they were wandering off hand in hand to a “new beginning”. So are they pulling an “Alien 3” and just killing off poor Michael offscreen? That would kinda suck.
“Underworld 4: New Dawn” currently has a January 20, 2012 release date.
