Another Doom Movie?

Recommended Posts

I saw over at Darkhorizons that they posted news about the fact that Todd Hollenshead would like to do another Doom movie.

...the guys at id Software still want another crack at turning the game into a feature.

Read more at Darkhorizons or jump directly to the Shacknews article they got their news from.

Hopefully a remake...or as someone pointed out, the first movie actually took place about 100 years or so before Doom (3), so who knows? They might be able to pull it off and do it right this time while still leaving the first movie's place as "canon" up to the individual viewer.

If they somehow get it right this time (or at least come significantly closer to doing so), I'm game for it. The first Doom movie was kinda fun in its own, B-movie way, but there were quite a few changes from the source material and some missed opportunities that took away from the experience. In my mind, if they make it scarier, and write it so the demons actually come from Hell and aren't just mutants, that would be a good start. I guess we'll see how things go, though. At this point it's too early to say.

EDIT: From the article, it really sounds more like conjecture than anything, so this might not even go anywhere.

And Shacknews got it from Kotaku.

Anyway, from the Kotaku article:

Hollenshead said that Universal still has the rights for the Doom movie and sequels, so the ball is really in their court on whether another is made...

...As the buzz meter starts to go up that may kind of kick start the guys over at Universal.

As far as I'm concerned, that says all that needs to be said.

Make it a satire - "National Lampoon goes to Hell". Practically anything would be an improvement on the first movie.
I wonder if Hollenshead is angling for a simultaneous game/movie release?

Needs to be done in this style:



Heh, I'd watch it. Of course, the theme has to be "Doomguy! Doomguy! Doomguy!" etc

This one needs Shia LaBeouf to add to The Rock's outstanding performance in the last one.


You must be on crack because The Rock carried that movie into watchable territory

I wholeheartedly agree with Ichor! It needs to be a bloody mess, tons of snappy one-liners, have a huge body count and R rated!

And Bruce Willis!

Milo: You think you are so fucking cool, don't you? You think you are so fucking cool. But just once, I would like to hear you scream in pain...
Joe Hallenbeck: Play some rap music.

Karl Urban did a pretty damn good job being Doom guy if you ask me. Except he looks a little more like FreeDoom guy.

I know but the Doom Guy was intended to be you and you aren't badass.

By the way Hollenshead says things, it would be promoting the style in DOOM 4 the way the first roughly showcased DOOM 3's.

They honestly didn't kill enough things the first time around. The half minute zombie rampage scene near the end was cool, but seriously, it took a whole team of marines to kill like 3 demons in the whole movie.

Edit: I will revise my statement and say they killed about 3 demons outside the FPS sequence.

we could get Hugh Grant to play doomguy.

I mean, he would be at least as credible as the Rock.

Karl Urban was good and the Rock wasn't so bad either, the whole movie was pretty good actually.The one thing that completely fucked it all up was leaving out the hell part.

It wouldn't surprise me if there isn't going to be an sequel, if I'm not mistaken the first one didn't do so well.So if the first one flopped, the chances of ever getting to see an sequel won't be too good.

I sure hope to see an doom 2 movie, only this time with hell included.

Needs more 1st-person action. To me that was the only thing that made it worth watching at least once. The pinky demon fight with the chainsaw was probably the closest part to Doom3 as it got.

My thoughts exactly. Just what was wrong with the original concept? I'm not sure how much the director realized what removing the Hell aspect did in terms of sucking out the intensity and originality of the game, but my god did that piss me off.

If they do another Doom movie and it invents some genetic mutant bullshit or whatever, I don't think I'll see it.
