I hate when stars make us look like assholes. After we reported exclusively last August(!) that Kate Beckinsale would return for Underworld 4, she denied it– multiple times. It’s now 100% official and confirmed that Beckinsale’s back as the sexy vampire Seline — in 3-D. But that’s not all. The studio is also confirming our scoop from this past February that stated Beckinsale would be passing the torch onto her vampire daughter (at one point “daughters”). I hate bragging, but it’s really, really nice to be vindicated. Casting is currently underway with a director being sought. We had heard that Len Wiseman might be directing, but it looks like he’ll remain in the producer’s chair. Shooting begins next March in Vancouver. Screen Gems will release on January 20, 2012.
