“Shield” Scribe Pens Fourth “Underworld”

“The Shield” writer John Hlavin will pen the script for a fourth “Underworld” at Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment reports Heat Vision.

While Hlavin won’t give away details on the storyline, he does confirm it’s not a prequel and it should “introduce fresh elements” as the filmmakers don’t want to redo the first three films.

No director or stars like Kate Beckinsale, Bill Nighy, Michael Sheen or Rhona Mitra have signed to return. Len Wiseman, Gary Lucchesi, Tom Rosenberg and Richard Wright are producing.
