The New Underworld Film Has Its Writer, Reboot Term Thrown Around

Not too long ago I was tipped off that we would be hearing about the new Underworld film sooner than later. I tweeted this, but couldn’t find much weight to it to justify writing a full-on news item about minuscule rumblings.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting tonight, however, that Lakeshore has tapped Cory Goodman to write the new film.

Comic-Con Exclusive: Any Chance of an Underworld and Resident Evil Cross-Over?

The Underworld and Resident Evil movies have been quite lucrative for Sony’s Screen Gems division and both of those franchises have created quite a devout fanbase with their combination of horror and action, so it wouldn’t be too surprising there may be some crossover between the fans.

Some of them may have even wondered if there’s any possibility of the two franchises one day crossing over, since let’s face it, a movie that stars both Kate Beckinsale’s vampire Selene and Millo Jovovich’s Alice would be pretty kick-ass. The coincidence that directors Len Wiseman and Paul W.S. Anderson happen to be married to their respective leading ladies makes it an even more intriguing prospect.

It’s a question fans of both franchises have wondered and when Shock Till You Drop had a chance to talk to Wiseman and Anderson at Comic-Con we decided to throw it out there. After all, Anderson was the man behind 20th Century Fox’s Aliens vs. Predator, which (relatively) successfully allowed the studio to relaunch both science fiction horror franchises. Read what they had to say after the jump.
