(Trailer) Underworld: Rise of the Lycans

The Underworld franchise is returning to the screens in early 2009 with a look back at the past. The story of the Lycan Uprising is explored - which we'd been told about in previous films. No Kate Beckinsale - her character hasn't been born as of that time - but Bill Nighey returns as Viktor and Michael Sheen as Lucian - the werewolf who falls in love with the vampire Sonja (played by Rhona Mitra) who is Viktor's daughter.

Change also at Director level with Patrick Tatopoulos taking over the reins from Len Wiseman. Patrick is much better known as a special effects guy and has previously worked on a host of films such as Silent Hill, I Am Legend, the earlier Underworld films, Pitch Black, Stargate, 10000 BC to name but a few. So the film should look stunning.

So, if you are up for some dark ages vampire vs werewolf action then I guess you'll be as eager as me to see this film on the big screen when it's released :)

Seconding this (well...bits of this...I don't know about the gossip!)

I always thought Lucien's back story was the more interesting part of Underworld, and he was the best character.

Here's hoping it's actually decent!
