Not a lot of details have been released yet but James will play the male villain in the fifth instalment of the Underworld franchise.

Kate Beckinsale will repise her role as Selene while Theo James is also returning as David, who first appeared in the fourth film, Underworld: Awakening and they will also be joined by Tobias Menzies (Game of Thrones and Outlander), who is playing Marius, a mysterious new Lycan leader.

Cory Goodman (Priest and The Last Witch Hunter) wrote the script for the film which will be directed by Anna Foerster (Outlander, Madam Secretary and Criminal Minds).

Aside from playing King Arthur for all five seasons of Merlin, James was most recently seen as Lowell Tracey in iZombie and just recently wrapped filming the first season of Damien, which will premiere on A&E next year.
