Have you heard of Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein? How about, together, as Marlind & Stein? Well, you’re going to hear about them soon, if their English language debut Shelter (starring Julianne Moore and Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is any good.
Now the pair are in talks to direct the fourth Underworld movie, says the Heat Vision Blog. The script is by former The Shield story editor John Hlavin with revisions by Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski, who just recently announced his departure from writing monthly comics, causing fans of proper storytelling to breathe a sigh of relief.
No word yet on what the story of Underworld 4 will be, but my best judgement says that it’s about the continuing war between vampires and werewolves, a topic that’s gives the franchise a new relevance in the wake of Team Edward and Team Jacob.
We can safely assume this fourth installment will some horrible subtitle like Revenge of the Vampries or I’m Lycan It! if it’s a musical.
