Get ready for more Lycans: Underworld 4 is happening

Underworld Werewolf

According to the consistently reliable ShockTilYouDrop.com, Sony’s Screen Gems is moving ahead with a fourth film in the “Underworld” franchise and is targeting a January 2011 release. Word is that the film will be shot in 3D, but it’s not clear whether the film will be another prequel, like this year’s successful Rise of the Lycans, or a continuation of the present-day story that left off with Underworld: Evolution. I’ll post more information as it becomes available!

    Well, if this pic is a teaser from 4, it’s safe to say that it’s a continuation of Evolution, seeing how there’s a sub-machine gun on this slain guy’s chest. Although I haven’t seen any of the Underworld movies aside from the original, the thought of a smart, gun-using lycanthrope is intriguing enough to make me want to see 4…although I’ve heard that the timeline is pretty convoluted now, so I should probably see 2 and 3 first.

    All things considered, if Underworld 4’s werewolves are as good or better than Van Helsing’s (bad as that movie was on the whole), I’m in.

  • Sorry, Roukwolf, the photo is from an existing Underworld movie– I just wanted to add some visual interest to the post, and remind folks of how cool the Underworld werewolves look.

  • All the other Underworld werewolves have been better than Van Helsing’s so that shouldn’t be an issue.

    They ought to set it in the future with only a small band of vampires being hunted down by a majority rule of werewolves teaming up with (gasp) normal humans. Vampires are SUCH asshats.

  • Vampires are SUCH asshats.

    Word.

  • “Vampires are SUCH asshats.”

    Ohh….I’m gonna have to steal that.

    Just so long as it’s better than Underworld: Evolution and at least somewhat as decent as the first film.

  • Go team Lycan!
    If they are really making a fourth, I will go so far as to work hard to not fail my driver’s test to go see it.
    Yes, yes, yes!
    *fist pump*
    I’ve been hoping for more (gore).

    i think flash back will be a better set up . but just hope the will give us better scenary than the one on the rise of e lycans , the costumes were great but the background wasnt up to…..you know it was lacking something , if they work on that this will be the movie of e century.

    It’s not a teaser pic. It’s from Evolution. It’s William Corvinus dragging one of his fathers men towards him by the head. That guy even turned into a first generation Werewolf after being bitten, just like the other four that went in with Selene, and was then killed by either a bullet or Michael shoving his fist through his back and chest. But yes. If there’s a fourth Underworld that’s better than the first two, I’d love to see it.
