Throw away your garlic and your holy water because the vampire heading up the next Underworld sequel will be Kate Beckinsale!

Despite reports last year that her character of Selene was being replaced by Divergent's Theo James as the star of the franchise, Kate has officially signed on for the fifth installment!

Though some things — like Kate wearing black pleather — should never change, there will be one big difference with this Underworld.

It will be directed by a woman!

Anna Foerster, who has directed episodes of Criminal Minds and Outlander and did second unit on the not totally dissimilar Aeon Flux movie, will be the first woman to direct an Underworld film!

Yay! Girl power! Well, living dead girl power, but it still counts!
