“I feel like I’m kind of done with that.”
We talked mostly about that movie and some of the other things she has coming up but eventually, our conversation got around to the Underworld series of which the trailer for the prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans recently debuted. After talking about her husband, director Len Wiseman’s involvement as the co-writer and producer with that movie, we asked whether she would have interest in returning as Selene for another movie continuing her story. She did think they might continue the series beyond the upcoming prequel, but she wasn’t sure if she’d continue doing them.
“I think they’re still going, they probably will. I’m not sure I will,” she told us. “I feel like I’ve played that character enough times that I don’t think I’d be excited to play the same character again. It’s a weird experience. I’ve never done that before, you’re playing the same character in two movies, and after two, I feel like I’m kind of done with that.”
Look for our full interview with Ms. Beckinsale including more on the Underworld prequel and what’s going on with Whiteout over on ComingSoon.net sometime next month, before Nothing But the Truth premieres in L.A. (and hopefully New York!) on December 19 and its wider rollout in January ’09.
