There Might be Another Doom Movie Coming
Are we about to return to the world of Doom?
By Jay Gervais
Actress Nina Bergman (Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!, Assassin X) made several recent tweets about an apparent new Doom movie in the works. However, readers should take this with a grain of salt since there has been no official announcement made by Universal as of yet. Bergman may play one of the main characters in the film.

According to Variety, these rumors found some added fuel as an NBC/Universal spokesperson had told them the new Doom movie was being handled by Universal 1440 Entertainment, which produces live-action and animated non-theatrical productions directly for distribution in all media worldwide. This would mean the film could be direct-to-DVD, or may appear on a digital platform like Netflix.
The last time we got a Doom movie was back in 2005. That film starred Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (Fast Five) and Karl Urban (Star Trek), and was only loosely based on the popular video-game franchise. The film was critically panned and didn’t do as hoped at the box office. While it was rated-R, it wasn’t anywhere near as ultra-violent as its source material. We sincerely hope the 2005 film will serve as a lesson of how not to do a Doom movie.
