DOOM: The Movie Update

A report on The Hollywood Reporter titled "Warners corners film rights to vid game 'Doom'" (thanks Hammer) has the latest on the ongoing efforts to make a movie based on DOOM, this time out the goal is a DOOM III tie-in. Here's the freely accessible portion of the article:

Warner Bros. Pictures is in final negotiations to pick up the feature film rights to id Software Inc.'s video game property "Doom" in a progress-to-production deal that will see the project go in front of the cameras in 15 months, or the rights revert back to the software company. Studio-based John Wells Prods. will produce "Doom" with recently departed worldwide production president-turned-producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura. Once the deal is firmly in place, a writer will be put on board to pen the screenplay. Although the video game was controversial because of its violence when it was originally released, the feature film version will aim for a PG-13 rating. "Doom," a first-person shooter, launched in 1993, and a third installment is scheduled for release next year. The feature film's story line will most resemble the third "Doom," which is set in the future at a paramilitary base on Mars, where a scientific experiment goes awry and accidentally opens a portal to hell. The vastly outnumbered hero fights off the forces of hell as they come from the portal onto the deserted base. This will be the basis for the feature version, without the constraints of the first-person shooter format.

Update: Yahoo has the full text of the story online (thanks Shacknews) which includes quotes from id Software CEO Todd Hollenshead.

PsycSui siad, "A DOOM movie wouldn't need impaled bodies and roasting flesh. Movies don't need to be founded on gore and gore alone. I mean, c'mon! A BFG made out of your own family? That's sick and wrong. You have issues, man. Real issues. "

You forgot to mention that they are wrapped in barbed wire. And that every time the gun is shot, it tortures the main characters loved-ones. Blood spurts from their eyes and noses, mouths, and other orifices. They are giving up their life to give the space marine a fighting chance. The only problem is that they aren't doing it for humanity or for Blake, they are doing it because they are tied to the frickin' gun against their will. And when Blake finds out, he realizes that everyone is the enemy and his mind cracks and he becomes insane. After he returns to earth, they have to deal with him. He is like the Lion come to remove the dog that was to remove the cat that was to remove the mouse. He kills more than all of the doom demons combined and finally stops when he sees a little girl holding a yellow balloon in a park while eating an ice cream cone. He realizes what he has done and falls to the ground crying tears of anguish and also of joy, joy that his mind has returned to him.

I'm not sick. I'm a creative writer.
