Theo James will be broadening his action-film resume with a lead-role in the upcoming fifth installment to the ‘Underworld’ franchise. James is already a character in the series, he played the role of David, a vampire, in the 2013 film ‘Underworld: Awakening.’ Now James will move from supporting role to lead-role in the new film which does not have a title at this point.

Although details are slim on the upcoming Lakeshore project, there will be two new female characters added to the film that have yet to be cast. Writing the script for this new film will be Cory Goodman with Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi producing the movie.

In the works for James is the follow-up sequel to ‘Divergent,’ called ‘Insurgent,’ a series based on the YA novels written by Veronica Roth. Insurgent is set to hit theaters on March 20, 2015. In that series James stars alongside the ever-popular actor Shailene Woodley. After Insurgent will come Allegiant Part 1 and Allegiant Part 2.
