I remember 2005’s Doom to be an okay movie, but, starring as it did a certain Dwayne Johnson before he became a big box office draw, it was a flop and seems to be generally considered as a typical example of a poor computer game adaptation. However, a few days ago actress/singer Nina Bergman announced on Twitter that she had signed on with Universal to be in a Doom movie, and that a director was attached to the project who was experienced doing “crazy cool female characters.”
It seems though that this film won’t be appearing in cinemas. Apparently ‘Variety’ did some investigating and was told by a Universal representative that, yes, a Doom project was in the works, and that it was being handled by Universal 1440 Entertainment, which specialises in “live-action and animated non-theatrical productions directly for distribution in all media worldwide”. So it could be heading straight to DVD, or appearing on a digital platform like Netflix – something that seems to have disappointed some fans considering that the most recent game was a huge seller and reignited interest in the series.
