There’s a new DOOM movie in the works over at Universal, according to vocalist Nina Bergman who accidentally “leaked” the information on Twitter.
Video game movie adaptations just aren’t what they’re cracked up to be. Is it because rather than playing the game and feeling a sense of achievement, we’re watching mundane gameplay and realising it’s just not quite the same? Who the hell knows, and who the hell cares? Not Universal, apparently, as they’re making another DOOM movie.
In a tweet from Bergman this weekend, we got confirmation that Universal were making a new DOOM movie with Tony Giglio directing:
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🍀 pic.twitter.com/q8t4iI0bgO

It’s interesting because the last DOOM movie, which starred everyone’s favourite actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, was an absolute flop. Even Johnson himself said that it was a bit crap.
Fortunately, Bergman confirmed that the movie has a much better script, which is somewhat hopeful, I guess.
It will be!! Much better script :) https://t.co/WqgksO7678

There’s currently no word on a release window, so I guess we’ll have to wait with baited breath.
