Michael Ealy (2 Fast 2 Furious, Takers) has been set to play the male lead alongside Kate Beckinsale in the now filming Underworld: New Dawn 3D for Screen Gems and Lakeshore, reports Deadline.
Ealy will play a police detective who hunts the vampiress and ultimately teams up with her.
Underworld 3D just got underway in Vancouver, directed by Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein from a script by J. Michael Straczynski and John Hlavin. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but we previously reported it would introduce us to Selene’s (Beckinsale) hybrid Lycan/vampire daughter. The film will arrive in theaters January 20, 2012.
