Dark Horizons has put online six new stills from the upcoming movie.
Slasherama sit down with executive producer John Wells to discuss the making of DOOM and their endeavors to make it a good adaptation of the game.
Slasherama: The movie features some first-person shots, to recreate the feel of the game. Can you tell us a little about that technique?
DOOM Marine recently interviewed actor Razaaq Adoti who'll play Duke in the movie.
John Wells: Once you get deeper into the film, that technique is very present. We did a lot of experimenting with how long we could stay in that first-person. There's a big difference between watching Doom on a 16 or 18-inch television right in front of you and watching it on a 20-metre-wide cinema screen. We fooled around with it, but we also felt that Doom without that would be a miscarriage of justice! We had to have some of it, because the game introduced that style in the first place.
DOOM Marine: Overall how does this movie rank on your list of accomplishments?
Razaaq Adoti: Quite high, cause we had a lot of fun making it. We had a two week military training boot camp thing that we went through; we had a lightweight training we went through. They really wanted to get us as physically as well as mentally ready for this movie. We went through a lot of preparation for it and it was a real fun character for me to play, I'm 6 foot 3 and I'm often cast as the big guy, kind of serious guy, you know the dramatic brooding, so for me to get involved in a little bit of comedy, not that this is a comedy by far, but my character, to be involved in that was just great fun. I really really enjoyed it and I want to do more of it.
