"Underworld 4" Hires "The Shield" Writer

Posted: November 20th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Underworld 4" Hires "The Shield" WriterSubmit Comment
Screen Gems has hired "The Shield" writer John Hlavin to pen the script for the fourth installment in the "Underworld" franchise. At this point, neither Kate Beckinsale (Underworld, Underworld: Evolution) or Rhona Mitra (Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) have signed on to return.

Hlavin said the plot is currently being kept a secret. "I can tell you it's not a prequel," he said. "It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences, meaning that we don't want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements."

Len Wiseman has already come on as a producer and is now searching for a director to helm the new project, which will be in 3D and is eyeing a January 2011 release.

The first "Underworld" film earned $96 million on a $22 million budget. The sequel brought in $111 million. And the third installment, a prequel, took in $91 million on a $35 million budget.

1st one ok, 2nd one not as good, not bothered with 3rd one. I'm sure this will be worse than any of the others.

When i hear of these supposed good writers/directors coming on board, i still have little hope.

Ever since AVP2, when the guy was "such a huge fanboy", apparently, and still managed to turn out an average film at best.

About time! I miss my gothic/slightly gay/Matrix-styled vampires mixing it up with huge black, slimy werewolves. These movies are awesome "Drinking Game Movies" too. Every time there's a ridiculously stylized shot of someone jumping from a really high spot - DRINK!

They've already ruined the series with movies 2 & 3. Why a fourth?

Why does Underworld even need a writer at all?

It's vampires and werewolves f*cking themselves up, no real need for a script.
Some production assistant can just write something up in 5 minutes and...

... Voila, Underworld 4.

Looks like they got a legitimate writer. Good! Underworld is still entertaining, better than the twilight sh*t.

Kate Beckinsale announced on her twitter that "Selene will be back!!"

Not that I would know that first hand.
