Remember at the end of Underworld Awakening when Scott Speedman’s stunt double got unfrozen from cryostasis and kind of just took off? And it was sort of implied that Underworld 5 would focus on Selene and her new daughter (werewolf/vampire hybrid Eve) trying to reunite with him, maybe reinstating his memory (or something) and starting a family?
The fact that I’ve thought this much about an Underworld film fills me with some degree of shame – but it looks like those plans are not to be. Beckinsale told Collider, “I think it’s probably unlikely that I’ll do one, but they may do one without me.” Granted, she admits it was unlikely she’d even come back for the fourth, but it sounds like she’s really done now.
I thought Awakening was actually kind of fun. It was the bright spot in the series (I hated the first two and thought part 3 was a bit better), and a financial success. It still appears that there will be another one – where would you like it to go? Perhaps they can reincarnate Rhona Mitra’s character?
