UPDATE: A Return to the ‘Underworld’ with a Fourth Film in 3-D

Update: B-D has learned that Screen Gems will release the film in theaters January 21, 2011. Sony Screen Gems must have been happy with the whopping $91m worldwide box office for Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, their prequel to the vampires vs werewolf franchise created by Len Wiseman back in 2003, as the studio is moving forward with a fourth film aimed to hit theaters in January 2011, reports Shocktillyoudrop. To continue a smart trend in Hollywood, the fourth film will be arriving in theaters in 3-D (you can’t bootleg 3-D, can ya’?). No word on if Michael Sheen, Bill Nighy, Rhona Mitra, Kate Beckinsale or Scott Speedman will return to the franchise, but it’s probably safe to say Patrick Tatopoulos’ company will be behind the FX again.
