Kate Beckinsale To Rejoin Underworld 4... In Space?

We love a good "vampires fighting werewolves with swords" epic as much as the next person, but one thing was seriously missing from the last Underword picture: Kate Beckinsale. Rumor has it she's back, and in space?

Strange rumors are circulating from Bloody Disgusting saying that Kate the blue-eyed vampire will be returning to the Underworld franchise, if only for a little bit, and with half-breed children no less.

Sources tell us she's trying to find a way out of the film - or at least have a smaller role in order to "pass the torch" to one of her kindred (yes, she has not one, but two daughters at this point).

Not impossible to believe as her husband, Len Wiseman is directing the fourth film, again. But that's not all — Variety is claiming the film will be in 3D and, wait for it, take place in SPACE. Which, apparently has been a long-standing rumor for this particular film. Vampires in space? We're in.
