Kate BeckinsaleKate Beckinsale has been officially confirmed as reprising her role as sexy vampire Selene in the next Underworld installment.

Fans of the franchise will be aware that Beckinsale ducked out of the third movie, last year’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and the lead role went to Rhona Mitra. But Selene fans will be happy to hear that Beckinsale’s shiny bottom will be back bounding across the silver screen in the near future.

Underworld is really something of a family affair, in the last film Beckinsale’s character Selene is only seen in flashbacks and was played by the actresses real life 10-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen. Sheen’s father Michael also stars in the Underworld franchise as Lucian, the werewolf. Beckinsale and Sheen had been together for several years but during the filming of the first Underworld movie the couple split up and Beckinsale started a relationship with the film’s director Len Wiseman who she later married.

Wiseman will be producing the fourth movie but the search is on for someone else to direct. Production is slated to begin in March next year.
