Back in 2005, a movie based on the Doom video game franchise was launched. Saying it was not well-received would be an understatement, but it seems that Universal isn’t giving up on Doom just yet.
Fast forward 13 years later, the studio has confirmed to Variety that a new Doom movie is in the works.
The movie’s development was reportedly first revealed by actress Nina Bergman who tweeted that she would be starring in it. “Wow I’m doing the next “Doom” movie w Universal Pictures! I just signed all the paperwork💃🏼I get to go back to Bulgaria again and work with some of my favorite people💕This movie w a super cool Director AND my new record coming out, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world🍀”
Unfortunately neither Universal nor Bergman revealed additional details such as who else might be in the movie and who that “cool director” would be. However what was confirmed is that the movie is being handled by Universal 1440 Entertainment. What this means is that the movie will not be shown in the cinema and will instead be a direct-to-DVD release and could also possibly be released on an online platform such as Netflix.
No word on when the new Doom movie will be released, but what do you guys think? Do you reckon the new Doom movie will be better than its predecessor? After all Universal did have 13 years to learn from it, so it should be much better, right?
