KATE GOES UNDERWORLD
For a while now we've heard a lot of good things about 'Underworld', an ambitious script that plots vampires against werewolves with a cushy little love story as the backdrop. The movie is getting made, despite all the good things we've heard about it, which is a giant leap forward for the studio heads.
The script is said to be full of action from beginning to end, so how they're going to fit a love story in? To give you an idea how different and cool this project is, Kate Beckinsale, seen recently in 'Pearl Harbor', described why she wanted to take part in something so out of the ordinary for her...
'This is not the kind of movie that I'm remotely interested in normally, but the script...and the director is amazing. I really don't go for vampire movies. But it's more kind of like 'Interview With the Vampire' meets 'The Matrix.' Lots of leather pants in it'.
Now, before you cringe and vow to chew out your own eyeballs before you see something described that way, understand that this is talent that's talking. Not really people with a firm grip on reality. Think of 'Blade II' with vampires hunting werewolves instead of each other and hopefully you're a little closer to the reality.
The movie begins shooting in Budapest next month, under the helm of music video director Len Wiseman.
