Underworld 4: has Kate Beckinsale, in 3D, out January 2012

Those are the facts, folks, as reported by Bloody Disgusting (and repeated by others): Sony Screen Gems has green-lit a fourth Underworld film, to be released January 20th, 2012. Word is that it will be shot in 3D, with Len Wiseman directing a script written by John Hlavin. And yes, fanboy-favourite Kate Beckinsale will be back as Selene, although it’s a “smaller role” in which she passes to one of her two(!) daughters the responsibility of wearing a lot of black latex and shooting werewolves. Hey, as long as we get to see more werewolves like this, bring it on!
