Underworld 5 is in development with an uninspired title

Vampires to fight werewolves again as Underworld: Next Generation gets underway

Underworld-AwakeningUnderworld: Awakening may have been a critical flop in 2012, but it made around $160 million worldwide, so it’s not too much of a shock to hear that Underworld 5 is in development.

BloodyDisgusting reports that Screen Gems is actively developing a new Underworld film, tentatively titled Underworld: Next Generation. They suggest that the latest sequel will follow Eve, the daughter of Kate Beckinsale’s leather-clad vampire Selene and Scott Speedman’s confused vampire/lycan hybrid Michael, who became the central plot point of the last film.

Those discussing returning cast should note that Speedman did not return for Awakening, and was replaced by an unconvincing stand-in.

The site states that the hunt for a writer and director is now on, but that Len Wiseman is returning as producer.
