A new Doom movie is in the works


Eurogamer has the story.

Quote:
13 years after Dwayne Johnson starred in Doom, a new movie based on id Software's famous first-person shooter is in the works.

But unlike The Rock's Doom, this new Doom probably won't come out in the cinema. Instead, it'll likely head straight to online, possibly even as a Netflix Original.

NBC/Universal confirmed to Variety the new Doom is being handled by Universal 1440 Entertainment, which makes non-theatrical productions directly for distribution. So, the new Doom may be direct-to-DVD or slapped straight on a digital platform such as Netflix.

We don't know anything story wise about the new Doom movie, but we do know actress Nina Bergman is set to star in it. She took to Twitter to announce her involvement.

not too bad. But i guess the movie will suck balls, like the previous one. Doom doesn't have enough to fill one movie.

Starcraft on the other hand.

I saw the Doom movie in theatres. The only part worth watching, and you can find this on YouTube, is the first person shooter sequence.

A Netflix series based on the original batshit insane Doom novels would be amazing. The first book is very Doom and reads like how you'd expect. The last one is like an Arthur C Clarke nightmare.

If you've never seen it this is all you need to know about the original Doom, lol.

I mean, if we can get another first person sequence then I'm all for it. So, I wonder if we are getting a female lead then. How would people feel about the "Doom Guy" being a Gal? Could be interesting...

I maintain that Doom could be a cool movie. But they would have to begin with the understanding that “story” is irrelevant and that it shouldn’t even try to have one. Like Mad Max, it should be about getting from point a to point b.

So many people, everywhere, read the reviews for the Doom movie and went with it. Every review slated it.

Didn't think that it was a bad film.

A bad film, to me, features Kevin Sorbo.


P.s. Just make the star a big bad ass dude. Stop messing with the formula. Then again as soon as she puts on the suit...

Instead of Doom guy they should have her play Metroid... that'd be cool

Make DoomGuy a girl? Check!
Make DoomGal beautiful so the director never hides her face under a helmet? Check!
Make a movie about Doom? Check!

As usual they'll find some dufus who during an interview tells us he watched the game and then decided he would re-imagine it according to some artwork his cousin made. The cousin is currently unemployed and in need of work.

I was thinking about it and why do they need to cast the Doomguy at all? Stay in first person with no talking from the main character. Sort of a Hardcore Henry on Mars. Use the demonic narrator from Doom 2016 to tell the story.

Yeah. That would be a good idea. IT DEFINITELY needs to be a more experimental type of film.
