Selene in back for another round of leather clad action in the latest Underworld sequel, New Dawn. We learned back in September that Kate Beckinsale would return to the series after taking a brief hiatus following Underworld: Evolution. Over at Bloody Disgusting, they’ve got the first plot synopsis for New Dawn that clues us in on exactly what the hell she’s been up to all this time. Check it out below…

According to the site:

“After being held in a coma-like state for fifteen years, vampire Selene (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.”

We wonder if the birth of Selene’s daughter is what caused her to go into a coma? Also, who’s the daddy? Oh wait, you already know the answer to that. Go watch Underworld: Evolution and you’ll learn how she got the half wolf bun in her oven. We’ve never been huge fans of the Underworld series but we can see the appeal it has for others.

Underworld: New Dawn will be directed by Swedish helmers Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stei. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on January 20, 2012. A January release date? That can’t be a good sign.

What do you think of the premise for the new Underworld? Are you interested in seeing the film?
