With four Underworld movies already released, and a fifth set to hit cinemas in October this year, you'd think any plans for a TV version would be cancelled.

However, that's not the case. Producer Len Wiseman has confirmed that talks are still in place to bring the vampire horror to the small screen.

"It's Really Appropriate For Television"

While talking to Collider, the 42-year-old said:

"It’s really appropriate for television, in terms of how those characters can really tie in, but also become something new. It’s really an attractive space.
"I don’t want to put a date on it because then that’s going to be printed and it might not happen in that timeframe, but it is a thought."

But do fans want a TV version? Kate Beckinsale has been the figurehead of the series, portraying Selene, a vampire who kills werewolves in an act of vengeance for killing her family.

The 42-year-old actress also recently split from producer of the series Wiseman after 11 years of marriage.

More Character Development?

On the flip side, TV does provide room for more in-depth character development, and the possibilities of direction are endless.

The war between Vampires and Lycan (werewolves) could be explored more intricately, plus the gothic, noir backdrop would make a perfect setting for an extended series.

Whether or not this ever happens, of course, is another matter, but there is still life in the old Vamp yet.
