Kate Beckinsale teases the possibility of one more Underworld

Underworld: Awakening hits theaters Friday, and a lot of fans are hoping this flick will rejuvenate the vampire vs. werewolf franchise. Kate Beckinsale didn't even think a fourth flick would happen, but now that it has, she says she's "fond" enough of her character that she can't rule out another run in that tight black bodysuit.

In a new interview to promote the film, Beckinsale was asked about the possibility of a fifth edition of the franchise. The ending, apparently, leaves things open for another installment, and Beckinsale herself certainly seems open to return.

"I'm the worst person to ask about this. I always said there was not going to be a fourth one, so you can't trust what I say at all," she said. "Playing the same character over and over again does seem a bit odd, but I am very fond of the character and other people are pretty fond of her, too. So, who knows?"

That's far from a yes, but it's certainly pretty far from a no as well, so it will probably all come down to box office. If Awakening takes in a good haul, Beckinsale will probably be invited to pick her guns one more time. If not, this vamp franchise might finally be staked.

Check out the whole video for more Underworld talk, and even a very brief discussion of Beckinsale's character in Total Recall.
