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.

Army of Darkness was rated R.

I remember, I got carded at the door and couldn't get in until I got some guy to buy me a ticket. (amusingly, he was taking his 6-year old)
