Actress Kate Beckinsale and her film director husband Len Wiseman are set to divorce after 12 years of marriage.

Court records show Wiseman filed divorce papers on Friday citing citing irreconcilable differences.

The pair, who reportedly announced their separation in November last year, married in May 2004 and have no children together.

They began their relationship after working together on the 2003 movie Underworld, which Wiseman directed and Beckinsale starred in as vampire warrior Selene.

The film also featured Beckinsale's former partner of eight years, actor Michael Sheen, who she has a 17-year-old daughter, Lily, with.

British Beckinsale, 43, will appear in the fifth film in the Underworld series - Underworld: Blood Wars - which Wiseman helped write and produce.

The film is due out in UK cinemas in February.
