Just an hour ago I participated in a press conference with part of the cast of “Whiteout” and producer Joel Silver. Since Kate Beckinsale is the lead in “Whiteout”, it was the perfect time to ask Kate about returning to the popular “Underworld” franchise. But according to Kate, reports of her returning for a 4th film are premature as she told us, “as far as I’m concerned it’s just a rumor.” More after the jump:
Will you ever do another Underworld?
Kate: I don’t know anything about a 4th Underworld. I don’t know anything about that at this point.
You know nothing about another Underworld?
Kate: I know they have…it was always conceived as a trilogy, which I was never going to be in the third one. I think if they came up with an amazing script I wouldn’t be adverse to it. But it’s not planned or anything.
There have been reports you signed to a new Underworld trilogy.
Kate: God, three whole more!
Kate: I don’t think my daughter needs to see my bottom in rubber for another ten years. But I don’t know, I’ve heard they’re talking about a 4th one, but I don’t know if that’s officially happening or it’s that a rumor. As far as I’m concerned it’s just a rumor.
So for now, nothing’s happening. But with how much money the franchise has made, it definitely wouldn’t surprise me to see Kate wear the rubber suit again. More as we get it.
