With the current state of constant remakes and reboots that Hollywood has been indulging in these days, this next bit of news may not exactly surprise you. The "Underworld" franchise, which starred the gorgeous Kate Beckinsale, is being rebooted.
The window for rebooting has appeared to become smaller. This franchise is only eleven years old and the last film, "Underworld: Awakening", came out a mere two years ago. Cory Goodman, who penned the other apocalyptic-vampire film "Priest", is penning the screenplay.
Lakeshore Entertainment is once again producing the next film and as of now, we have no idea how it will fit in with the preexisting story, if at all. The term reboot has become rather vague and the lines are blurred these days. Is it actually a sequel, continuing the story? Is it a re-imagining that feels very different than the originals? Or is it a straight remake, using the same characters, folklore, etc, while utilizing the technological advancements of today? Only time will tell what is in store for this one.
