Theo James Heads Up Underworld 5

September 12th, 2014 by Dave Bowling Comments

Theo James is going back to Underworld.

Lakeshore Entertainment is currently developing the fifth film in the vampire franchise and Divergent actor James is apparently attached as the lead.

James played a vampire named David in 2013’s Underworld: Awakening and the character will apparently be the central character in the new film, which is not claimed to be a reboot but an expansion of the existing universe. Sources say James had a contractual option to return because of his work on the previous film and he’ll star opposite two female characters.

Cory Goodman (Priest) has been hired for scriptwriting duties; while Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are producing. Casting is underway with plans to start shooting in the spring.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
