The actress said: ‘Tim understands the human heart in a way I have never seen certainly on screen.’

She went on: ‘He knows the pain of the misunderstood, of the odd and even of the mad. He celebrates them in a way that is both totally unique, so very, very tender, sometimes terrifying and very often hilarious.’

Ryder is set to team up with Burton and Michael Keaton again  for a long in the works sequel to 1988’s Beetlejuice and I am so excited!!

Underworld 5 is happening..

In this day and age, where studios view every film as a potential franchise starter, it shouldn’t surprise anyone when we hear about an unexpected sequel. Underworld 5, also known as Underworld: Next Generation, is indeed happening, and it will once again feature the true face of the franchise, Kate Beckinsale.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Beckinsale is set to reprise her role as the badass vampire Selene, who has appeared as the protagonist in three of the previous four installments. She sat out 2009’s Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. At this point in the franchise, she has a daughter with her lycan/vampire hybrid hubby Michael Corvin (Scott Speedman), though at the end of the last film, Underworld: Awakening, he is nowhere to be found, which will probably come into play at some point.

Right now there aren’t a ton of details regarding Underworld 5, as they’re being kept under tight lock and key. The few tidbits we do know, however, indicate that the plot sees the never-ending war between vampires and lycans continue as new generations on both sides take up the conflict. Makes sense that it would be called Next Generation. Theo James has a small role in Awakening as a young vampire named David, and is set to reprise his role in the new film, so perhaps he could be part of the driving force behind this reignited feud. He does sustain a serious injury and see much of his coven slaughtered, which sounds like the makings of one pissed off fanatic vampire warrior to me.

Anna Foerster has been tapped to direct Underworld 5. All of her directorial efforts up to this point have been in TV, on shows like Outlander and Criminal Minds, but she has a ton of experience behind the camera as a director of photography, second unit director, and assistant director. She’s worked a great deal with the master of disaster Roland Emmerich, lensing movies like White House Down and Anonymous, as well as contributing footage to The Day After Tomorrow and 10,000 BC. So she’s certainly no stranger to working on big movies, and though the franchise has primarily featured a female protagonist, this marks the first time that a woman has been hired to direct an installment of the action-centric vampire series.

Underworld 5 is scheduled to film in Prague starting in October, and you have to assume that Prague in the fall is an ideal place to shoot a movie about ancient sects of vampires and werewolves battling each other.

Will update as I find out more 🙂

• Director 

Woody Allen

• Pass/Fail

Pass: Stunning costumes & scenery with a perfect cast, quirky sense of humor and a great storyline. I now miss living in LA even more.. That Mexican restaurant 

cafe-society_0

Fail: There has been a lot of upset surrounding how Jews & Black people were portrayed in this film or lack of.. it has been said this film was airbrushed.. but I enjoyed it and didn’t notice this so I wouldn’t take ‘the haters’ comments so seriously. It’s a great watch.. even if it is a little dreamy!

• Overall Impression

Overall, this film is Woody Allen’s most charming film since Midnight in Paris and maybe the most beautiful to look at. It’s a pretty little reminder of what once was in the golden days of Old Hollywood. *Oh I wish I could go to that time*
