Posted on October 19, 2011, Phil Owen Universal Planning Another Doom movie
While id tools away at Doom 4 without really talking about it much, Universal still thinks there’s money to be had in a Doom film, and so they’re looking to put one together… in 3D.
This will not be a sequel; rather, it would be a reboot, which makes sense as the first film kinda sucked. Still, if they wanna be true to the franchise, they’ll make it a reboot and call it Doom 2, because it’s not like id has ever concerned themselves with making sure that games with a number behind them have anything to do with the other games in the series.
Is this a cool idea? I can’t tell, and I’m not going to pass any judgment on this until they get a screenwriter and director, assuming they go that far with this plan. That’s the only way I’ll be able to guess if it’ll be good.
