Earlier this month is was announced that Swedish director duo Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein would be directing Kate Beckinsale in Underworld 4, which has now been given the title Underworld: New Dawn. Plot details have been kept under-wraps, however now a synopsis for the movie has found its way online.
“After being held in a coma-like state for fifteen years, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) learns that she has a fourteen-year-old vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter, Nissa, and when she finds her they must stop BioCom from creating super Lycans that will kill them all.”
So not only will Beckinsale have a daughter in the movie, she”ll also have to fight off super werewolves. I suppose after 4 movies there are only certain places left to go with the vampires vs. werewolves concept.
Filming is set to begin in March 2011 in Vancouver. John Hlavin (The Shield) wrote the script, which underwent revisions by J. Michael Straczynski (The Changeling). Len Wiseman, who directed the first two movies in the franchise, will be producing.
Underworld: New Dawn will be released in 3D in January 2012.
