The crew behind Underworld 4 is seriously taking shape now as The Hollywood Reporter writes that Len Wiseman, who helmed the first two Underworld movies, will not be directing this fourth installment.
Instead Wiseman will act as a producer, while the directing will be made by the Swedish directing duo of Bjorn Stein and Mans Marlind, who recently gave us the creepy thriller Shelter, with Julianne Moore as forensic psychiatrist.
Not much has been revealed about the plot, more than it’ll be a direct sequel to Underworld: Evolution. The screenwriter John Hlavin has said that by honoring what we fans love, but also introduce new fresh elements to the story, he hope that the movie will satisfy old fans as well as excite new ones to the franchise.
Except Kate Beckinsale, it’s unclear who else will star in the movie, but I hope that they’ll find a way to include Bill Nighy, since Viktor is one of my favorite Underworld character. However, before the filming will start in March, 2011, in Vancouver I guess that the cast will be complete.
Underworld 4 is slated to hit us on January 20th, 2012, in 3D.
