Underworld 3 is a Go — Without Kate Beckinsale

According to Bloody-Disgusting, the Powers That Be have decided that the world needs an “Underworld 3″, even if Kate Beckinsale won’t return for what is expected to be a prequel. Not only will Kate Beckinsale not reprise her Selene character, but the first two film’s director, Len Wiseman (aka Kate Beckinsale’s husband) won’t return as well. Instead, he’ll be replaced by Patrick Tatopoulos, who is apparently a well-known FX man. BD says to expect official announcements for the project in a week or two.

If it’s true that Kate Beckinsale won’t be back for the third go-around, I’m not surprised. It was already a shock that a proper English actress would suit up in a tight black latex bodysuit for a comic booky werewolf/vampire movie in the first place, but when she returned for a sequel? Wow.

Anyways, since the third is supposed to be a prequel, they wouldn’t necessarily need the Selene character back.

Although I have to say, it sure would be nice to see Kate Beckinsale squeeze into that outfit again…

    I enjoied both underworld movies and still watch them today. I was hoping to see the next one to be continued from Underworld Evolution now that Marcus and William are dead and Selene being changed by the blood of Alexander Corvinus. I just hope that this prequel turns out to be as good as the first two, and after they are done with this prequel I just hope that they will finally continue on with Selene and Michael’s battle with the remaining Lycans and Vampires being hell bent to destroy them for what they have done. Also the Mythology and secrets have all been explained in the first two movies, so by doing a prequel will only prolong what us fans really want to see and know. I also know that Selene was not turned until after Lucian had stolen the key to Williams cell, but that should not keep Kate Beckinsale from being in Underworld 3 since the part of Lucian getting the key is what caused Viktor to kill her family and turn her in the first place. So if anything she should be in the movie even if it is towards the end. So hopefully after they do this prequel they will begin to break new ground for the Underworld Trilogy.
