Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
UNDERWORLD is a series of action Horror films that began in 2003 and has sequels that include UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION (2006), UNDERWORLD: RISE OF THE LYCANS (2009), and UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING (2012). Not very long ago we learned that Lakeshore Entertainment and Screen Gems are moving forward with another installment in the franchise.
We previously learned that actor Bradley James, who is set to portray Damien in the upcoming A&E series of the same name, was cast in UNDERWORLD: NEXT GENERATION. He will be playing a villainous role in the film. We also know that Clementine Nicholson will be in the film as well. She will be playing the character of Lena, the Nordic Coven’s greatest warrior and daughter of Vidar.
We have now learned that Lara Pulver's role will be a "fiercely ambitious vampire." Plus Charles Dance will make a return as vampire Covenmaster Thomas. Also joining the fold with unknown roles are James Faulkner, Peter Andersson, and Daisy Head.
Principal photography has officially begun on UNDERWORLD 5 and is set to be filming in and around Prague for the next ten weeks.
The above mentioned casting additions join Tobias Menzies and Kate Beckinsale who will once again be returning to reprise her role as Death Dealer Selene which should be pleasing to fans. Also Theo James, who appeared in UNDERWORLD: AWAKENING will reprise his role as David.
Anna J. Foerster has been giving the directing duties on UNDERWORLD: NEXT GENERATION and the script is being written by Cory Goodman. The film will center around a new generation of vampire and werewolves dealing with a new supernatural conflict.
UNDERWORLD: NEXT GENERATION currently has a release date of October 21, 2016.
