Underworld 4 Pushed Back To 2012, Roland Emmerich's Next Set For 2011
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Underworld fans are going to have to wait even longer before they get to feast their eyes on a fully latexed Kate Beckinsale again. Underworld 4 has been cranking through development for quite some time now with Len Wiseman back at the helm, but even so Sony’s Screen Gems arm has decided to push release back from September 23, 2011 to January 20, 2012. They don’t cite a reason according to ComingSoon, but presumably they’re buying extra time to really hone the story. Screenwriter John Hlavin had this to say:
"It will satisfy old fans and excite new audiences, meaning that we don't want to redo the first three movies, so steps are being taken to honor what fans have loved but at the same time introduce fresh elements."
The fourquel will be filmed in 3D but that should come as no surprise. But despite the feeling that Kate Beckinsale is coming out of the screen, she’s still never going to touch you.
Sony also announced that they’ve set a release date for Roland Emmerich’s next film, Anonymous at March 25, 2011. Prepare yourself...the film is NOT a tale of survival set against some sort of global apocalypse. It’s actually a political thriller about who really wrote the plays of William Shakespeare, but I’m sure the world will crumble under someone's feet at one point or another.
