Heat Vision Blog reports that the Swedish directing team of Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein are in negotiations to direct Underworld 4.

Måns Mårlind and Björn Stein recently made their English-language movie debut with Shelter, which stars Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, although it hasn't been released domestically as of yet.

We reported back in September that original Underworld star Kate Beckinsale is returning for Underworld 4. John Hlavin wrote the script, with J. Michael Straczynski performing rewrites.

Filming will start in March 2011 with shooting to take place in Vancouver.

Underworld Awakening was released January 20th, 2012 and stars Michael Sheen, Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy, Michael Ealy, India Eisley, Theo James. The film is directed by Måns Mårlind, Björn Stein.

    i loooove Kate Beckinsale so my opinion is a bit biased. I will see it just to see her in those tight leather outfits. Does that make me shallow? I have always enjoyed vampire/wolf movies and this is more my style....forget those hokey twilight abominations....this is the kind of vampire i love to see...the kind that turn to dust when touched by sunlight (not sparkly). It is unfortunate that the twilight series has given the vampire genre a bad name to anyone not a female tween. Rona Mitra was just as sexy IMO and if you want to see a really nice Mitra performance check out The Hollow Man....the part where Kevin Bacon is spying on his hot neighbor (mitra) while she is changing (nude scene)....that movie is worth watching just for that scene. That DOES make me shallow (oh well). However i am glad that Kate Beckinsale is back.

    Awesome news, now hopefully this gets underway. With Kate Beckinsale back this is either a sequel to Rise of the Lycans to show Selena's beginnings, or a possible sequel to Evolution. Either way, I'm on board. And with JMS doing the rewrite? Hell Yes!

    Bleh. The third Underworld was actually surprisingly good! But I still can't get over how terrible the first two were.
