Wiseman Talks "Underworld" and "Die Hard" Sequels

by | June 9, 2006 | Comments

As if he wasn’t already blessed enough by having Kate Beckinsale as his Mrs., writer/director Len Wiseman looks to have his plate full with sequels. Read on for a little info regarding the man’s plans for "Underworld 3" and "Die Hard 4."

From iF Magazine: What can we expect from UNDERWORLD 3?

LEN WISEMAN: The third film is going to be a prequel. It will be the origin story and we find out things we didn’t know about Lucian; he’ll have a much bigger part in it. It will be about the creation [of the races] and what started the war. It will be a period piece. In terms of the writing, a lot of the writing has been done. We’ve been developing UNDERWORLD 3 for a while. I won’t be directing UNDERWORLD 3; I’m just going to be producing and writing.

iF: Is Kate going to be in it, or is this in the time period before her character?

WISEMAN: It will be in the time period before, but it will overlap into the creation of her as well. We’re in the process of seeing how far we go with that.

iF: How do you feel about being asked to direct DIE HARD 4?

WISEMAN: It’s going and it’s exciting. DIE HARD has always been something I grew up loving as a franchise. When I saw that film in Junior High, I ran home and got my video camera. I got my special effects guys, Chris and Jason from across the street, and I started making my own DIE HARD movie. In terms of how I’m connected to it as a fan, it has always been a favorite.
