Theo James will be going back to Underworld. Can I get a Hallelujah? How about an amen? James is attached as the lead in the 5th film Underworld: Next Generation, in the vampire action franchise, which Lakeshore Entertainment is currently developing.
Theo, who played a vampire named David in 2013’s Underworld: Awakening, will be the central character in the new film, which is not a reboot but rather an expansion of the existing universe. Sources say there was an option on James because of his work on the previous film, and he’ll star opposite two new female characters. Casting is underway for those roles, with plans to start shooting in the spring. For more on this exciting news check me out.
