Theo James, who played a sexy blue-eyed vampire in 2012’s ‘Underworld: Awakening’ will repeat his role as ‘David’ next year in the franchise’s fifth installment, while Kate Beckinsale won’t return as ‘Selene’

“Lakeshore Entertainment has signed “Divergent” star Theo James to star in the fifth film in its vampires-versus-werewolves franchise.

Kate Beckinsale, however, will not return for her Selene role after starring in three of the four previous films.”

Rumors said, he’ll be playing the lead this time, and now that ‘Insurgent’ is done filming, he’ll have plenty of time:

“Lakeshore is ramping up development on the yet-to-be-titled film and aiming to shoot in the spring. James starred as a new character and vampire ally to Beckinsale’s character in the fourth film,  ‘Underworld: Awakening.’ “

Can’t wait to see Theo in a new ‘Underworld’ movie? Comment below!

Shailene Woodley and Theo James promise emotional ‘INSURGENT’

Shailene Woodley(Tris) and Theo James(Four) had an interview with LA Times Hero Complex. During that interview they talked about returning to Insurgent.

Read an excerpt from the interview:

HC: How’s the experience been shooting the second film?

SW: It’s been wonderful. I’ve been having so much fun.  It’s been really nice to switch things up. Everything in a way is different. We’re in Atlanta, it’s summer, it’s not cold, Chicago winter. Our director is different, the set design is different, the costumes are different. It feels much bigger. It’s interesting because the movie feels bigger in tone and in image but in a scene it feels smaller. Some scenes feel like we’re doing an indie film in a way because they’re so full of truth. Robert, our director, is really, really keen on making sure we feel comfortable with a scene as well as he feels comfortable with a scene. Until it has the right flow or the right tone, he won’t move on and that’s a big blessing in a big movie like this, to have somebody who really is keen on us feeling like our needs were met to support the character and that his needs were met to support the film.

TJ: We put a little taste together just to show the crew how we’d been doing and what came through is A) the scope. It looks kind of richer and bigger and more complex, but what came through to me was the emotionality behind it. Again, that sounds wanky.

SW: This movie is pretty emotional.

TJ: Yeah, but not in a cheesy way. There’s real stakes behind it, and sometimes that’s hard to find in spectacular situations. If you’re watching these movies that are spectacles, which are fun and it’s about this thing and escapism, sometimes the crux of the emotionality gets lost. That doesn’t necessarily sometimes matter, but we are trying to retain that with this film.

HC: Has it been fun to be able to build on the performance from the first film?

SW: It has. With a movie like this, we will spend a week doing a train sequence where we’re just fighting for a week or doing choreography or walking down a hallway or running, but then there’s a lot of gratifying moments. Last week for three days in a row… I was working with someone and we had a lot of emotional scenes together. It was nice to go home at the end of the day and feel exhausted for exerting a lot of feeling versus exerting a lot of physical energy.
