‘Underworld’ Director Teases A “Future” For The Franchise

by Thomas Tuna

Is another vampire-werewolf rematch in the offing?

The Underworld film franchise is celebrating its 20th anniversary, and original director and franchise co-creator Len Wiseman recently dropped some strong hints that the supernatural series may continue–but maybe on the small screen this time.

The filmmaker told Entertainment Weekly that “there’s a fashion that is in the works, but I can’t talk about it. But there is a future to Underworld for sure.”

Continuing the discussion about his film franchise, Wiseman cryptically referred to a possible TV series–an idea that had been proposed a few years ago. “That’s the one I’m referring to,” Wiseman said.

The horror franchise–created by Wiseman, Kevin Grevioux and Danny McBride–follows characters caught up in a bloody war between vampires and werewolves.

The original 2003 Underworld film–helmed by Wiseman–introduces Selene (Kate Beckinsale), an elite vampire warrior, and Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), a human who becomes involved in the battlegrounds.

The film series–which wasn’t well-received by critics–was a hit with horror fans, raking in $539 million on a combined budget of $207 million.
