Kate Beckinsale Returning To “Underworld” 4
Kate Beckinsale, the star of the first two films in the “Underworld” series, has rejoined the cast of the franchise for a fourth film. Beckinsale did not appear in the third film, “Underworld: Rise of the Lycans,” which served as a prequel to the first two films.
Beckinsale’s return to the cast raises a number of other questions about the upcoming fourth film. Among those questions is whether or not Scott Speedman will return to the cast in his role as Michael Corvin. The other big question that remains unanswered is whether or not Beckinsale’s husband Len Wiseman will return behind the camera having directed the first two films.
Beckinsale’s absence in the third film jived with the story line which took place before the first two films on the timeline. Rhona Mitra stepped into the leading female role for that film. The fourth film gets underway in March 2011 with filming taking place in Vancouver.
