Actress Kate Beckinsale has her sights set on screenwriting after teaming up with the friend she once mentored as a child.

The Underworld star, who was once a young writing competition winner, played tutor to a school pal who went on to become a scribe - and now the two women have teamed up to pen a screenplay about a dysfunctional group of friends.

Beckinsale tells C magazine, "My friend and I went to the same school in London and I wrote a lot as a child and was constantly winning writing competitions. And my mother asked her over because she wanted to become a writer.

Aaron Eckhart
Aaron Eckhart is set to pile on the prosthetics to play Frankenstein's monster in a re-imagining of Mary Shelley's classic story.

The Dark Knight star has signed up to appear in I, Frankenstein, a new film based on Underworld co-creator Kevin Grevioux's graphic novel of the same name, which sees Shelley's monster having survived into the present day.

The movie's screenwriter and director, Stuart Beattie, tells Variety, "Mary Shelley's story is about the creation of the first human being. This is the story about that being becoming human."

August 23rd, 2011 1:18pm EDT
Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale had to be convinced by her filmmaker husband Len Wiseman to reprise her role as a vampire in the Underworld franchise.

The British actress starred in the first two movies, but was left out of the third installment, and she was reluctant to reprise the role of the vampire character Selene in the forthcoming Underworld: Awakening as she was originally told the series was a trilogy.

However, Wiseman, who co-created the story, was determined to coax his wife into playing the part once more.

She says, "I really wasn't intending to do another one. I kind of always heard that...

Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale could wear a garbage bag and she'd still look sexy. The actress attended the "Going the Distance" Los Angeles premiere on Monday wearing a simple white shift dress with polka dotted pockets. We think she looks great, as usual. What do you think?

The actress was recently voted the third hottest mom in Hollywood, following Halle Berry and Monica Bellucci. Kate is mom to 11-year-old Lily.

Kate is one of the rumored actresses to take on Catwoman in an upcoming Batman movie. She faces stiff competition from Megan Fox, Angelina Jolie, and....wait for it...Cher (?).

Total Recall
"Underworld" filmmaker Len Wiseman has been tapped to bring Arnold Schwarzenegger's "Total Recall" to the big screen in a modern remake of the 1990 action classic.

Movie studio executives at Columbia Pictures secured the rights to the sci-fi thriller last year and hired "Salt" writer Kurt Wimmer to work on the updated screenplay.

Wiseman has now been approached to direct the blockbuster, which follows a man who believes he's a secret agent and is haunted by a recurring dream about traveling to Mars, according to the Los Angeles Times.

An expected release date for the new "Total Recall" h...

Kate Beckinsale
A sexy Kate Beckinsale wore a silver Dior crystal gown at the "2010 amfAR's Cinema Against AIDS" gala held near Cannes on Thursday. We know the draped, jeweled part of the dress is supposed to be the focal point, but we can't our eyes off her shapely backside.

Kate Beckinsale Found Sexy Title 'Mortifying'

November 8th, 2009 10:00am EST
Kate Beckinsale Found Sexy Title
Kate Beckinsale was mortified after she was branded the Sexiest Woman Alive - and she hates admitting she's the owner of the title.

The Underworld star was handed the honor by Esquire magazine earlier this year, knocking beautiful Halle Berry off the number one spot.

However, the bashful Brit insists she has struggled to cope with the alluring name - and finds it hard when people quiz her over her new sexy status.

She says, "It's such a nice thing to happen and then immediately it's mortifying. Somebody came up to me in the street and went 'are you the sexiest woman alive?' And ...

Are Zombies The New Vampires?

October 19th, 2009 10:56am EDT
Let's get this out of the way first: I'm a zombie fan. I don't like vampires, and I don't think that Edward is particularly sexy. Sorry. But as an entertainment commentator for Starpulse I'd have to admit, with some reluctance, that vampires have zombies over a barrel. And it doesn't look like that's ever going to change. The hit television series True Blood, and the media swallowing ultra-franchise Twilight, have demonstrated a renewed interest in these banal blood-suckers. While movies like Zombieland continue the trend of zombie comedies which, although undeniably funny, only re-enforce ...

Kate Beckinsale Named Sexiest Woman Alive

Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale has been named Esquire magazine's Sexiest Woman Alive. The Underworld star, 36, takes the crown from Halle Berry, who was named last year's top lady - but the feisty Brit insists her brothers won't let the new title go to her head.

She says, "This whole notion of being named Sexiest Woman Alive is going to earn me quite a beating. You can't have that title with four brothers. I'll get wedgies. Headlocks. Noogies (knuckles to the head).

"I'm feeling that I must earn this - I need to go out and become much better at pole dancing or something."

Kate Beckinsale On Her New Movie 'Whiteout,' Motherhood, And London

September 8th, 2009 10:15am EDT
Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale is kicking butt again in this week's thriller Whiteout. While there's no doubt she can handle the bad guys, as evidenced by her Underworld movies, being a working mom is more of a real life struggle.

"She comes with me," Beckinsale said. "She was with us during this. I try to make it as normal a life as I can. I'm a regular working mom, who puts her kid in a bath, which is probably very annoying to Joel [Silver] when I'm like, 'I have to go home now. My daughter needs a bath.' I think she's lucky to be around lots of very nice, creative, sweet people, and have experiences...

Brandon Routh Finds A New Superhero

February 23rd, 2009 1:08pm EST
Brandon Routh
Brandon Routh probably won't get to play Superman again given that the studio plans to totally reboot the franchise, a la Batman Begins/The Dark Knight. It seems he's found another comic book character though in Dylan Dog. He is set to star in the film version of Tiziano Sclavi's Italian comic book series in a film from producers Ahstok Amritraj and Patrick Aiello.

"We have a movie called Dead of Night which starts shooting in April with Brandon Routh," Amritraj said. "Kevin Munroe who did Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [TMNT] is directing it. That shoots in New Orleans."

'Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans' Soundtrack Out Now; Win It!

January 28th, 2009 6:00pm EST
Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans
Like the other two films in the series, the soundtrack for Underworld: Rise Of The Lycans boasts a top-notch lineup of rock, goth, and industrial acts remixed by the album's producer, Danny Lohner. Lohner is a former member of Nine Inch Nails and has performed with many of the artists who appear on the soundtrack including Puscifer and Black Light Burns. As a remixer Lohner uses the moniker of Renholder (re d.lohner backwards).

Another familiar artist returns to the Underworld series. Puscifer -- the alias of Tool and A Perfect Circle's Maynard James Keenan, contributing the tune "L...

'Underworld' To Be A TV Drama?

Rise of the Lycans
Underworld director Len Wiseman is set to downsize his werewolf versus vampire movie franchise by turning it into a TV drama. The director has just released Underworld: The Rise of the Lycans in America, and he admits he has small-screen plans for the future.

Wiseman, who met and fell for his wife Kate Beckinsale on the first Underworld film, tells BloodyDisgusting.com, "There's a lot of talk about a television series and I'm looking into that. If I could be very involved... I'd be very interested in that.

"We had always hoped to do a trilogy, and now that we've completed that, it...

Robert Pattinson Voted Hottest Male Movie Vampire

November 21st, 2008 12:42pm EST
Robert Pattinson
British heartthrob Robert Pattinson has been named the hottest male movie vampire of all time, trumping big screen bloodsuckers Brad Pitt, Antonio Banderas and Tom Cruise. The 22-year-old star is poised to set teenage girls' hearts a-flutter in the adaptation of hit novel Twilight; released in theaters today.

And Pattinson is already movie fans' favorite vampire - before he has even sunk his teeth in a victim on the big screen.

He has topped a Moviefone poll to find the best batty biter.

From Dusk Till Dawn star Salma Hayek topped the female poll, ahead of Kate Beckinsale, wh...

Slideshow: The Lovely Kate Beckinsale

August 5th, 2008 7:00pm EDT
Kate Beckinsale
Check out the top ten selections from Starpulse's Kate Beckinsale photo gallery (which currently stands at seven pages of super-hotness). Kate got her start at the bottom of the "cast and crew" lists for several movies before landing some starring roles in a few mediocre films. Films such as The Last Days Of Disco and Brokedown Palace led her to be cast as the one good thing in Pearl Harbor.

After that she got our blood boiling in skin-tight black leather as the superhot, gun-wielding werewolf-hunting vampire Selene in Underworld (and it's almost better-than-the-first sequel, Underwor...

'Prison Break' Season 3 Escapes On DVD Aug. 12; Win It!

Most men would think breaking out of prison once is hard enough. However, escaped convict Michael Scofield finds himself wrongly incarcerated, this time in a Panamanian Prison where there are no rules, no wardens and no escape.

In Prison Break Season Three, breaking-out on DVD and Blu-Ray Disc (BD) August 12th from Fox Home Entertainment, Scolfield, morally-deprived T-Bag, former-guard Bellick and FBI Agent Malone, must not only fight to survive but also plan the most dangerous prison escape yet.

Kate Beckinsale Denies Rivalry With Eva Longoria

June 8th, 2008 10:00am EDT
Kate Beckinsale
Kate Beckinsale has laughed off reports of a rivalry with Eva Longoria Parker - insisting her fellow actress is too "tiny" to be her competition. Beckinsale has spent a lot of time with Desperate Housewives star Longoria Parker since moving to Los Angeles, sparking speculation the pair befriended one another to further their acting careers.

But the Underworld star insists she doesn't regard the Texan beauty as a rival - because their dissimilar physiques prevent them from competing for film roles.

She says, "How could Eva and I be up for the same parts? She's tiny and I'm fascinat...

Beauty & Brains: The Most Educated Celebrities

April 16th, 2008 9:50am EDT
Natalie Portman
There's nothing better - or more intimidating - than someone with a combination of good looks, lots of money, unbridled talent and intelligence. It's easier to make fun of people like Paris Hilton or Britney Spears, who might possess a few of the aforementioned assets but who are one short of a perfect combination.

But some celebs have it all. Beauty, money, power and an impressive academic pedigree. So here is Starpulse's list of the most erudite celebrities, and some might come as quite a surprise. (Conan O'Brien went to Harvard?)

Ashley Judd may have found critical acclaim for ...

Kate Beckinsale Turns Her Back On Sexy Roles

March 27th, 2008 9:09am EDT
Kate Beckinsale
British actress Kate Beckinsale has vowed not to take any more glamorous movie roles - declaring her time as a "sex-bomb" is over. The 34-year-old star began her acting career in Kenneth Branagh's 1993 version of Much Ado About Nothing but graduated to action-packed adventures including Underworld and Van Helsing.

However, Beckinsale is now determined to turn her career around and prove herself as a serious actress. She says, "The sex-bomb thing is totally fun but you want to take the red shoes off sometimes. I've been wanting to do something more dramatic. I don't regret any of my mo...

Kate Beckinsale's Motherhood Struggles

March 12th, 2008 1:25pm EDT
Actress Kate Beckinsale struggled with motherhood after her daughter Lily was born in 1999, and is amazed they both survived the experience. The Underworld star admits she suffers stress and anxiety trying to juggle a young child and a Hollywood career.

She says, "I don't understand how more people don't drop children out of windows. I remember turning up on the set of Pearl Harbor and all the boys had been to boot camp and I had a 14-month-old baby, and had been told that I had to be in the gym four hours a day."

"On top of the not sleeping and all this physical activity, the b...
