Sony Pictures Entertainment national talent search for 'Underworld 4: New Dawn' female co-starring role

*** This open casting call has expired ***

The casting executives for the upcoming feature film "Underworld 4: New Dawn" are conducting a national talent search seeking "a fresh talent to play a pivotal role as a female teenager". Actors can submit a homemade audition video on the studios casting website.

The talent search is part of Sony Pictures Entertainment's launch of a new casting platform for new talent called "Face of The Fan®". The program is designed to help unknown aspiring talent stand out from the crowd and get noticed by key decision-makers to be considered for roles in upcoming major theatrical releases. The "Face of The Fan®" trademark motto is "Turning Today's Fans Into Tomorrow's Stars".

Reprising her role as the character Selene, Kate Beckinsale will take the lead in Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment’s fourth installment of the "Underworld" franchise, and the actress selected from the talent search will co-star alongside Beckinsale.

The project penned by John Hlavin with revisions with J. Michael Straczynski will be produced by Lakeshore Entertainment’s Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi, and Len Wiseman will also co-produce. Screen Gems and Lakeshore Entertainment have hired Swedish directors Mans Marlind and Bjorn Stein to co-direct "Underworld 4". Their most recent film directed was "Shelter" starring Julianne Moore. Screen Gems’ Senior Vice President of Production, Scott Strauss will oversee the project for the studio. Screen Gems is a subsidiary of Sony Pictures Entertainment.
