DOOM Movie Star

The Hollywood Reporter (thanks GameGossip and Frans) has word that a star has been chosen for the upcoming DOOM movie, reporting that Karl Urban will play the DOOM marine. Most recently Karl was in The Bourne Supremacy, after previously appearing in such geek-friendly projects as The Chronicles of Riddick, two of The Lord of the Rings movies, and a bunch of episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess.

While he's not an actor at the same level of say, a Harrison Ford, he was a very good fit for the roles he played in Bourne Supremacy and Chronicles of Riddick, and he'd fit the role of the marine well. He has a good, stoic, I don't give a shit - come get some, look to him that would match well with the marine.

Then again, who am I kidding? As if this movie is every going to come out.

I see that you're still dumber than a box of rocks.
First of all, the movie certainly is going to come out & it won't take forevery dumbass.

Secondly, the script is done, the producers are chosen, Universal studios has put a director in the seat, and the lead is also divulged. The movie is set for production in Prague next month.

Please kill yourself. You're a waste of human skin. Your continued stupidity in the forums is adding to our need to sift through the bullshit.

Oh yeah, we already know who wrote that pathetic crap you posted, your name is to the right of the post. You don't have to sign it. That's redundant. Or are you just dense and still don't get it?

Karl Urban was the worst actor in the LOTR trilogy. Well...maybe Liv Tyler. But I don't even consider her an actor. She's not even cute enough to be eye candy. Sort of like Drew Berrymore. Get them off the screen!

I think a bad actor will be perfect for a Doom movie. It will suck, be rated PG-13, and no one will see it. Why waste good acting on a videogame movie?

Making this movie will be a minefield... they can't have a sexy lady with big boobs...
I'm sure they'll find a way to turn it into a Hollywood Formula pos with the obligatory "Oh John! Oh Mary! Oh John! Oh Mary!" kissy-face romance crap.

And everyone that's beating up The Rock for his acting abilities...yeah...he did suck...but then I saw The Rundown. Not exactly an Oscar winning performance, but not bad either.

"Urban will play John Grimm, the leader of a special ops team that is at the center of the futuristic action-adventure film. When dealing with alien demons, he is forced to cross paths with the organization responsible for his parents' deaths."

His...parents? when...wha..eh..? Who the f*ck cares about the doomguy's parents? So it's not enough that he has to battle the hordes of demons from (alien!) hell, but he has to fight the oh so evil corporate cover up AND, they killed his parents!, well bu-hu, so the doom movie is gonna be a dramafest about the doomguy's feelings and hatred and revenge, and maybe once or twice in the movie an alien demon (thats right, not just demons, but ALIEN demons!) will pop up. I mean...it's doom damnit. I expect very little dialog and if there is any it should be crappy swarzenegger/duke nuken one-liners. The rest should be an R-rated blastfest with lots of gore and gibs....

Who am I kidding...has there ever been a good gamemovie?

Mortal Kombat
Streetfighter
Mario Bros
Dragon VS Dragon
Wing Commander
Tomb Raider
Resident Evil
AVP
and some others I bet...Anyway, all pretty crappy movies right? I bet (sadly) that doom will be as good as Bloodrayne.

You never did read the bible, did you?

I'm thinking not...the Bible is one of the most brutally violent and sexual books ever...to be literally turned into a movie would warrant an NC-17 rating.

Actually, there is a shot of his smug look in riddick, and to me, that picture alone says he is the doom marine, it's written all over his face, the shine of the forehead, the snear eyes...all based on the guy we see getting off the ship in D3 of course.

Oh, and for director they name "...the talented and notoriously difficult to spell Andrzej Bartkowiak...", who directed...Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds, and Cradle 2 the Grave.

I initially read that as "Romero Must Die" and though, "Hey, that's appropriate!"

This movie has to be R, I don't care if they have teletubbies in it, as long as the rating is R it will do fine.

The cast for the marine was really good I think, Karl has the looks to pull this off and it's not really that much of a challenge for any actor to just shoot a weapon for two hours.

As far as storywise I think this movie has to start without giving the viewers any idea of what's going on, but have the people he meet and stuff he sees at camera, hear over the radio and stuff like that tell the story. Like in the game, but more in a way so it will suit the movie.

Making this movie will be a minefield, they can't have bullettime in it, they can't have techno music, slow motion scenes. They can't have gangsta black guy doing the funny one liners, they can't have a sexy lady with big boobs playing the "I hate you marine - oh it's the ending lets make out".

The movie obviously has to have tons of CG, but it would be really cool having most of the monsters "real" as in puppets or whatever, it gives the movie a better feel to it, with CG you "know" it's not real so it kind of ruins the immersion if it's just too much, which in a movie like this can get really annoying.

If Rock gets a role in this movie I hope he is a hardcore soldier/Sarge with no "prettyboy with muscles" look.

Making a Doom movie that's rated PG-13 is as blasphemous as making a Bible with porn in it. For the love of God, if they take a movie called "Doom", whose trademark is demons, blood, guts, and guns and make it anything but an R-rated film I will write off video game movies forever.

What part did he play in LoTR?

Never mind, I know now.

Anyways, just from a visual stand point he looks like he makes the perfect Space Marine. He's very average looking, though I'm sure he could look pissed if he tried....
