The first sign that your franchise has officially run out of gas? You have to swap out your lead for Rhona Mitra.
I guess this is what happens when Len "Mr. Kate Beckinsale" Wiesman drops the franchise like a hot potato (to make the reportedly shittastic Live Free or Die Hard no less). In related news, "congratulations," Michael Sheen. You've finally inherited the leading man mantle from Scott Speedman.
Oh, and forgive me. The official title is Underworld: Rise of the Lycans. Because Underworld: Dig Our Gaywad Mythology was already taken.
