That’s right Underworld fans! Kate Beckinsale has confirmed that she is returning to her role as death dealer vampire, Selene. After her unbelievably sexy roles in Underworld and Underworld Evolution she opted out of Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. But Underworld 4 is a whole other story! She originally said that she would never do Underworld 4, but she has changed her mind. Hurray!
Underworld 4 begins shooting in March and is said to be released in January 2012. Sources say that there is a big surprise in the upcoming film. But, the script hasn’t even been completed yet, so I’m not sure how reliable these sources are. Before I share the juicy rumor, let have a quick Underworld refresher.
Lycans were once enslaved by the vampires, who used them as slaves and guardians of their lairs during the daylight hours. However, Lucian, the lycan leader, lead a revolt and freed his kind after Viktor killed his own daughter (who was pregnant with Lucian‘s lycan baby). Vampires and lycans have been at war ever since. Fast forward to modern day, where Lucian performs experiments on people in hopes of creating a vampire/werewolf hybrid. Cue Michael Corvin! Lucian, with the help of Selene, succeeded in turning Michael into a hybrid. Selene and Michael fall in love of course, and well, you guys know the rest.
Now on to the Underworld 4 rumor, and it’s just that, nothing but a rumor that is going around the web. People are saying the big surprise coming in the fourth movie is a baby. Yeah, they think that Selene and Michael are going to have a baby. But no one knows for sure, that would be a hell of a surprise though. Personally, I don’t see a baby fitting into the badass story.
But what do you guys think? Can you picture a leather-covered Kate Beckinsale pregnant with a werewolf/vampire baby?
