Kate Beckinsale can't get enough of being Selene. EW has confirmed that the actress has signed on to reprise her Underworld character in what would be the fifth installment of the vampire franchise. As part of an option agreement, Theo James is also set to reprise his role as David from Underworld: Awakening.
Adding to news of Beckinsale's casting is the announcement that the film will be directed by Anna Foerster, marking the first time a woman has helmed a female-led horror franchise. Foerster, who has directed episodes of Starz's popular series Outlander, has also done second-unit work and was director of photography on action films such as The Day After Tomorrow and White House Down.
