‘Divergent’s’ Theo James to Star in ‘Underworld 5’

Move over, Kate Beckinsale: The Underworld franchise has a new lead.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Divergent star Theo James will reprise his role as David from 2012’s Underworld: Awakening to headline Lakeshore Entertainment’s new film, written by Cory Goodman (Priest, The Last Witch Hunter).

In Awakening, James played a vampire fighting alongside Beckinsale’s Selene for his race’s survival. Announced two weeks ago, the planned fifth installment of the action-horror series is being characterized not as a reboot, but rather an extension of that universe. According to THR, James will star opposite two new female characters.

James went from a supporting role in Underworld: Awakening to launch another franchise alongside Shailene Woodley with Insurgent, the sci-fi action film based on the bestselling YA novel by Veronica Roth. Summit Entertainment has already announced plans for three sequels.
