Both parties are said to have waived their rights to spousal support.

The 46-year-old director originally filed for divorce in October 2016 citing irreconcilable differences.

Underworld was a box office hit and the couple made a further four movies together as part of the franchise.

When Beckinsale was cast in the first Underworld movie she was in a long-term relationship with Welsh actor Michael Sheen, with whom she has a 20-year-old daughter Lily. Sheen co-starred in the first movie, after Beckinsale persuaded Wiseman to cast him too.
