Underworld: Rise of the Lycans (2009) [No Kate Beckinsale :(]

Beckinsale dropped from Underworld 3

An “Underworld 3” is happening.

The bad news? (Yeah, besides the fact that a third “Underworld” is happening!) : Kate Beckinsale will not be in it.

Yep, you read right. The only ‘good’ thing about this franchise is walking – and she’s taking her body-hugging trousers with her!

Beckinsale’s hubby, writer/director Len Wiseman, is writing a penning to the first two films, so Beckinsale’s character, leather-clad avenger Selena, won’t be needed. (And, I'm guessing, either will Scott Speedman's pussy-boy lad).

"I think it's a prequel before I'm actually in it, so I think that won't include me if it happens," the spunkette tells MTV, in an interview to promote her forthcoming comedy, "Click".

Oh, and don't count on seeing her in the mutli-coloured bra and undies set either. Beckinsale adds that she’s not interested in playing “Wonder Woman”, despite rumours to the contrary.

Nothing like two blows in one night, hey?

Hey, Paris?

If they bring in some other hottie in vinyl, I imagine the movie will be just as good as before. "Good" being relative, of course.

Get it? Cuz it's a movie about vampires.

If the third one is made, and Beckinsale's not on board, dollar to a doughnut says that it's a direct-to-video release.

Yeah, that saved the Species franchise, it did.

Why would it suck? Underworld 2 was the worst piece of crap.

I didn't mind U2 that much. One of the saving graces was Beckinsale though.


PS: Is there any movies you do like?

Since I don't believe Beckinsale qualifies as hot, I don't care. Oh, and add Keira Knightley to that list.

Maybe she got in a fight with Len. After all, he is her husband.

I wonder if that's a smart move. Probably won't matter as long as they can shoehorn some hottie in leather into the movie somewhere.

Well if its a prequel and it has a good story then I dont really care. I really liked her in the movies, but I would be interested to see vampires with swords insted of guns!

Interesting. Who qualifies as hot to you? Ricki Lake?

Bummer. I was gonna say that opens the door for Lacey Chabert to play a young Selene, but vampires take forever to age...and Chabert is more well endowed than Beckinsale.
