Updated: Kate Beckinsale's stunt double on the set of Underworld: New Dawn
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
To be honest, I had completely forgotten they were making a fourth film in the Underworld franchise, entitled UNDERWORLD: NEW DAWN. So of course I forgot that the film is starring the lovely Kate Beckinsale, who returns to the franchise after taking the third installment off. Below are some set photos from the set in Vancouver and unfortunately, that’s not Kate Beckinsale in the photos below. It’s actually her stunt double, who manages to fill out those skin tight leather pants almost as well as Kate can.
Along with Kate Beckinsale, the film also stars Stephen Rea, Michael Ealy and Sandrine Holt. Kate’s hubby, Len Wiseman, will not be returning to direct the fourth film and will instead defer to Swedish directors Mans Marlind and Byorn Stein to handle directing duties. The film hits theaters on January 12th, 2012.
UPDATE: Geesh, now Sony is claiming copyright infringement on the pics below, citing the Copyright Act, Title 17 U.S. Code Section 106(3)-(4). Those of you astute to reading the law know that the same act, section 107(3) clearly gives news agencies the right to reproduce such photos given the proportion of the material in question to the overall copyrighted work. Couple that with the fact that the pictures were taken from a Vancouver local and they have no case, making their strongly worded email sound ridiculous. But they have the money to fight it in court and I don’t.
