Kate Beckinsale will play vampire Selene once more in a fourth Underworld movie, it’s been announced. The film, still looking for a director and an actress to play Selene’s daughter, will begin shooting in March in Vancouver for a January 2012 release. Few details are known about the script from John Hlavin (The Shield), which is being revised by J. Michael Straczynsk (The Changeling), but I’m all for Beckinsale’s return to Selene’s latex catsuit, which she’s donned twice before (the third film in the franchise, Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, was a prequel starring Rhona Mitra). It took her to the round of 16 in our summer Sexy Beast bracket game, and who knows what would have happened if she hadn’t met Twilight‘s Edward Cullen. The luck of the draw…

Do you agree that bringing sexy back is a good idea for Beckinsale? (Yes, her last film was with Robert De Niro, but EW gave that movie, Everybody’s Fine, a D. Every project is a roll of the dice.)
