Riding two major trends and perhaps marrying for the first time the pop-cultural forces that brought us not just True Blood and Twilight but Pixar's Up and New Line's upcoming The Final Destination, Screen Gems will make a fourth Underworld movie in 3-D, ShockTillYouDrop reports.

No word yet on whether the movie will be another prequel, like Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, or follow up on the loose ends left dangling at the end of Underworld: Evolution. No returning stars or recurring characters have been confirmed as yet.

The fourth film in the "vampires-fighting-werewolves-across-the-centuries" franchise is currently scheduled for a January 2011 release.
