Theo James takes over the Underworld franchise
Theo James has signed on to star in the fifth installment in the Underworld franchise, currently titled Underworld: Next Generation.
James appeared as the vampire David in the fourth film and will now be the central character in the new film, which is not a reboot but rather an expansion of the existing universe, starring opposite two new female characters.
Kate Beckinsale will not return.
Cory Goodman is writing the script of the Lakeshore production, which looks to start shooting next Spring.
