"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Written by John Hlavin (The Shield) and revised by J. Michael Straczynski, the movie is set to begin production in March in Vancouver. A search is under way for a director and for an actress to play Selene’s daughter.
Beckinsale appeared in 2003’s Underworld and 2006’s Underworld: Evolution but didn’t participate in 2009’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, which served as a prequel to the original film.
Although never critical successes, the low-budget movies have grossed more than $300 million worldwide.
The new installment will be produced by Lakeshore Entertainment’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi, and Len Wiseman, with Scott Strauss overseeing the project for Screen Gems.
