Hard to judge this one as I be honest with you, I have never seen an Underworld film.
Why? Well when the first one came out in 2003, the critics weren’t kind and it was one of those films I thought “I watch it again one day”, and four sequels later, I still haven’t.
Not even the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale has enticed me and yet oddly, I own the DVD Box-Set!
Anyhow, the franchise has got a massive fan base and the film franchise is now heading towards the small screen. Original director Len Wiseman has confirmed the plan.
“Yes, there’s been a lot of conversations and even development on what that series would be,” explains Wiseman. “It’s really appropriate for television, in terms of how those characters can really tie in, but also become something new. It’s really an attractive space. I don’t want to put a date on it because then that’s going to be printed and it might not happen in that timeframe, but it is a thought.” Wiseman confirmed to Collider.
The fifth film again starring Beckinsale is due for release in October.
