Underworld Franchise to Reboot?!

Underworld is getting the reboot!

It seems lazy to me that they are already rebooting the Underworld franchise. It was extremely popular and built a world with numerous possibilities. Why start back at the beginning? Can’t anyone over at Lakeshore Entertainment come with a new idea set after the events of the last film, Underworld: Awakening?

The Hollywood Reporter broke the exclusive news that Lakeshore Entertainment is in fact rebooting the Underworld franchise. They have hired Cory Goodman (Priest) to write the script  and Tom Rosenberg (Million Dollar Baby) and Gary Lucchesi (Crank) will produce.

There are no details on cast, plot, and whether or not the Lycans and Vampires will be a war.

 That sucks. I want a couple more in this series. A reboot would have to really impress me to get me to watch.

It does seem pretty weird and stupid to re-boot a franchise that is barely over 10 years old.

 I think everyone is taking the Underworld Franchise way to seriously.  The Underworld movies were basically eye candy flicks with cool looking actors, sets and special effects the writing / plots were inane. I couldn't care less if they reboot as long as the next one looks as good as its predecessors.

Underworld is like the Matrix but only with vamps and werewolves.  The first one was moderately entertaining and the rest just meh for me.

 they dropped the ball with the plot with the second one for marcus

 ^^^ This....exactly

I like the franchise enough to be mildly curious and slightly excited to see it but not enough to be offended by a reboot. Roll camera......

 Didn't care for the vampire/werewolf hybrid angle. It became kind of confusing with the tangled family relationships. I hope they go in a different direction with the reboot.
