It appears like Common Photos are going to simply faux final yr’s Doom: Annihilation didn’t occur. That film was imagined to course-correct from the 2005 Doom, which was additionally not a lot cop. However hey, third time’s the allure proper? Now plainly Common is lastly planning on doing it proper – as a substitute of attempting to crowbar the fundamentals of the sport’s setting right into a crappy Aliens ripoff, they’re simply going to do a big-screen adaptation of the unique DOOM.
Sources near WGTC – the identical ones who informed us a brand new Scream film is in improvement and Han was returning in Quick & Livid 9 – have knowledgeable us that the wheels are turning on a brand new venture that’ll be completely separate from the earlier two. My guess is that they’re going to take lots of inspiration from the latest video games within the collection: 2016’s Doom and 2020’s Doom: Everlasting. These have succeeded as a result of they’re ultra-violent, goofy enjoyable: you play because the close to invulnerable Doom Slayer, who pinballs across the place carving up demons in ever extra inventive methods to a heavy steel soundtrack.
Moreover, we’re additionally listening to that Hobbs & Shaw and The Crown‘s Vanessa Kirby is being thought of for a task. Now, there aren’t many ladies within the Doom franchise however I feel she is sensible for enjoying Dr Olivia Pierce, the principle villain of the 2016 reboot. Pierce is a scientific researcher finding out Hell with a view to remedy a human power disaster. Through the course of her research she makes a take care of a demon lord: people get to harness the ability of hell and in trade, demons get fitted with cybernetic enhancements. Everybody’s a winner!
Nicely, they’re till hell begins invading our universe and cyber-enhanced demons start pouring by way of portals. If solely there was a sure somebody with chainsaw expertise hanging round…
This venture is probably going a number of years out but, but when they observe the current video games’ lead and go balls to the wall with the motion and gore we’d lastly see a superb Doom film. Fingers, claws and tentacles crossed.
