UNDERWORLD sequel gets a writer
John Hlavin has been hired to write the fourth UNDERWORLD film. So far, Hlavin has primarily worked in TV. He has written episodes of "The Shield" and "Day Break." In case you were wondering, the episodes Hlavin wrote for "The Shield" had nothing to do with vampires or Kate Beckinsales. Promise!
Hlavin has not revealed many details about his UNDERWORLD film, but he did make it clear that it would not be a prequel. Also, Hlavin did give a very, very broad idea of what to expect with this latest film: "It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences, meaning that we don't want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements."
The fourth UNDERWORLD film now has a writer in Hlavin, but no one is currently attached to play the film's lead, and it is still not sure which character that will be. Possibly even a new one. The project also needs a director.
