Underworld 4 has been rumored since Underworld: Rise of the Lycans opened in early 2009. There’s been speculation of the fourth chapter, a straight-up sequel taking place after the second film, arriving in 3D and featuring Kate Beckinsale back in Selene’s skin.
Today, series co-creator Len Wiseman told IGN that the fourth film is “all being written and talked about and hopefully all comes together. So we’re seeing how things happen. But we’re all keeping our fingers crossed.”
He added the plan right now is to bring Beckinsale back. “We’re both waiting to see what kind of story comes together. It’s just getting the script to a certain place where we’re both happy with it.”
Underworld 4 is currently scheduled for a September 23, 2011 release.
