SCI FI Wire reported this week that a Hollywood movie based on the Quake series had been envisaged long before that of DOOM was even in production and that id Software would very like pursuing this idea.
"There has been talk about a Quake movie," Hollenshead said in an interview. "We would be interested in pursuing that. We had a good experience with Lorenzo [di Bonaventura] and John [Wells, the producers] and the cast [Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Rosmund Pike and others], as well as Universal." The trick with turning the Quake games into a film is that the games include very different environments. "The challenge for Quake is what to draw from for the movie," Hollenshead said. "Quake 2 and 3 are very different, and Quake 4 is kind of a prequel to 2. So for a movie, we will probably draw from the Quake 2 and Quake 4 universe—an alien race from another planet that has attacked the Earth. That sort of thing." Will it matter if the Doom film does well or not? "It won't make much difference to us, we see everything independently," Hollenshead said. "But in the ranks of Hollywood, if they see the Doom movie as successful, it will raise the interest level and they would want other game movies and come to us."
