It was almost 13 years ago that Doom got its own action movie with Dwayne Johnson, but a new tweet by actress Nina Bergman reveals that Universal Studios is once again putting the intellectual property back onto the film forefront. Nina’s tweet is the first evidence that a film reboot of Doom was even on the cards, with the actress revealing that the script is complete and that she’s signed on for a role in the movie. It’s not known how extensive her role will be, but for the moment she’s the only confirmed cast member in Universal Studios’ second attempt to do justice for the gory franchise.
Bergman followed up on her initial tweet by stating that the new Doom movie had a much better script than the original, which scored a lowly 19% on the rating website Rotten Tomatoes. Dwayne Johnson, who had a starring role in the original, recently took a shot at the poorly-received original film by calling it a ‘stinker’ on Twitter last week. Universal Studios will be hoping for a much better reception this time around, especially now that movies like Assassin’s Creed have shown that game-based movies can produce decent profit margins (despite a similarly poor reception from critics). The original Doom movie cost about $60,000,000 to make, but clawed back only $55,000,000 at the box office.
Wow I’m doing the next “Doom” movie w Universal Pictures! I just signed all the paperwork
