2005’s “Doom” is not regarded as a good movie, as its own star was happy to remind us last week. The second time may prove to be the charm, however, as actress/musician Nina Bergman tweeted that she’ll be appearing in a new adaptation of the demonic video game.
“I’m doing the next ‘Doom’ movie w Universal Pictures!” she wrote, adding that production will be in Bulgaria with a “super cool” director who has yet to be named. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Karl Urban starred in the 2005 version of the first-person shooter, which earned just $56 million against a budget of $60 million and received poor reviews. When Johnson tweeted about the film being a “stinker,” the official “Doom” account responded simply, “Dwayne.”
No word yet on who else might be involved in the next “Doom,” which hasn’t been confirmed by Universal. Renewed interest in the series may have to do with a 2016 reboot of the series, which is regarded as one of the best games of its kind in recent years.
