Underworld 5 has officially begun its ten-week shoot in Prague and surrounding areas, as officially announced by Sony. Besides Kate Beckinsale, Theo James reprises his role from 2012’s Underworld: Awakening as David. He’s a lot more famous now than he was back then, thanks to the success of the Divergent movies, and it’s believed that he may take over as the series’ new lead, meaning we won't need to watch any more movies in the series.
Also returning from Underworld: Awakening is Charles Dance as David’s dad, a Vampire elder named Thomas. Tobias Menzies is confirmed to play a new Lycan leader, and James Faulkner will appear in an unspecified role. The previously announced Lara Pulver is now confirmed to be playing a new Vampire character, and Bradley James and Peter Andersson help round out the cast.
Anna Foerster, who worked with Menzies on Outlander, is directing, and the movie is scheduled for a October 21, 2016 release.
