It’s hard to believe, but we’re coming up on the fifth film in the Underworld franchise. Originally, this sequel started out as a reboot that Kate Beckinsale wasn’t going to be involved in, but the actress returned to the lead role as Selene, and the movie was retooled as just another sequel. Now the first trailer for Underworld: Blood Wars has arrived, and you’ll see that it’s not much different than the first Underworld movie from all the way back in 2003.

TV companies are going crazy trying to mine film libraries for the next big television series, because why come up with an original untested idea without an established brand name title, right? I almost included the movie to television series trend in my 9 Current Movie and Television Trends I Hate article last month, but I decided it was too soon to make that judgement.
While I’m already tired of seeing the announcements, I really loved Fargo (and I really mean LOVED — it’s my favorite television series of the year), I’m still enjoying Friday Night Lights/Parenthood showrunner Jason Katims‘ About a Boy, and I know many people who really dig Hannibal, Bates Motel, and From Dusk till Dawn: The Series. So it’s hard for me to condemn it at this point. And yes there are also Gotham, Constantine and Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but I consider those shows comic book adaptations.
You might be shocked to learn that there are currently over 30 television shows in development right now based on big screen movies. Which are good ideas? Which sound horrible? After the jump, I attempt to rank all of the movies being adapted into TV shows, by concept from worst to most promising ideas.

Hit the jump for more on the potential Kate Beckinsale Underworld return and the possible Underworld TV series.
