Bloody Disgusting got their hands on two important pieces for Underworld fans yesterday, regarding the upcoming 4th installment: the title and the plot.

Labeled Underworld: New Dawn, the story is as follows: “After being held in a coma-like state for fifteen years, vampire Selene (Kate Beckinsale) learns that she has a fourteen-year-old vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter, Nissa, and when she finds her they must stop BioCom from creating super Lycans that will kill them all”.

If you’re a fan of the series then perhaps this is good news. The last entry, Rise of the Lycans, was a fairly well-received prequel, so it’ll be good to get back to the regular narrative in what could be Beckinsale’s last outing in the franchise. Directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein are planning on 3D to help drum up more interest in the series, and are aiming at a March start date with a possible January 2012 release.

Thank to Felix for the tip.
