Fifth entry in slick UNDERWORLD franchise gets an official title.

SHOCK has just learned that the previously untitled fifth installment in the slick, stylized action/horror UNDERWORLD franchise, which was shot entirely in the Czech capital of Prague last year, will now be called UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS.

The lovely Kate Beckinsale will once more pour herself into the PVC catsuit to play heroic vampire Selene and Theo James will reprise his role from UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING. Also in the cast is Tobias Menzies (OUTLANDER), Lara Pulver (SHERLOCK) and the great Charles Dance (GAME OF THRONES) returning as Thomas, the king of the bloodsuckers.

Veteran TV director  and cinematographer Anna Foerster is directing while the screenplay is penned by Cory Goodman (PRIEST).

The previous entry, UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING did boffo box office but was met with lukewarm fan response. Time will tell if UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS will restore the faith.

UNDERWORLD: BLOOD WARS will release on October 14th from Screen Gems/Lakeshore Entertainment.
