Last month we reported on news that Divergent‘s Theo James had been cast in the upcoming Underworld film and that it wouldn’t be a reboot, “but rather an expansion of the existing universe.” Well, why not have both? Franchise director Len Wiseman has dropped some pretty big news at New York Comic Con, revealing that we’ll be getting a hell of a lot more Underworld than previously anticipated.

Talking to IGN, here’s what Wiseman had to say:

There’s a few things being developed right now. There are some characters who we really liked that will be in a kind of a spin-off like we did with Rise of the Lycans, then we have another film in the works with Kate [Beckinsale] as well…and then there’s a television series.”

Yep, Beckinsale’s on her way back and there’s a television series on the way.

Wiseman revealed these projects are “all in development,” but didn’t reveal anything about how — or if — they’ll be tying everything together.

Here’s IGN’s interview:
