Monday 1st December 2003: Doom Update:
ID head huncho Todd Hollenshead has revealed in an interview what is happening with the development on Doom "They (Warners) just got a revised draft of the script and it's looking really good. Our deal is actually putting time pressure on Warner Brothers to not sit and wait on the movie"
Tuesday 12th August 2003: Doom Update:
SKNR has been in touch with the following "A source claiming to be involved in the production sent me this .... The writers of SWAT submitted a
draft to Sony, but that never made it. The rights are owned by Warner Bros.
The movie's producers are John Wells and Lorenzo DiBoniventura
As per my digging, Warner has to have the film in production by November when the rights could shift back to ID software where new deals would have to be made. Sony is interested in getting the rights but the ball seems to be in Warners court."
Wednesday 6th August 2003: Doom Update:
Gareth has just sent in the following "While covering SWAT, I came upon
this nugget regarding the long delayed film. seems the writers of SWAT (Ron
Mita and Jim MCClain) have beeen hired to write the script for DOOM .This
is according to sources at Sony and verified by the media kit for SWAT in
the writers Bio."
Monday 30th September 2002: Doom Update:
Warner Bros are in negotiations with software company id for the rights to make a movie out of their games property Doom. Doom alongside Castle Wolfenstein 3D are widely recognized as being the most influential first person shooters and have spawned many many clones. The deal they are thought to be going for is a 15 month deal that will mean they will have to make a movie within those fifteen months or lose the rights. No writer has been hired yet, Doom is being produced by Lorenzo DiBonaventura and John Wells Productions. But it looks like they are making serious changes to the Doom scenario, as they are looking for a PG-13 rating. Doom was always chock full of gore, and fans will no doubt expect this in the movie version. Doom the movie is thought to be taking the plot of Doom III in which scientists on a Martian base accidentally open a portal into Hell.
