This Game to Film is Far From ‘Doomed’

Another one saved from the dreaded Uwe Boll experiment. Doom, despite its title, is a project that refuses to die, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Despite having had several homes — at Columbia Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures — the video game has landed at Universal Studios, which has optioned the feature film rights from the game’s maker, Id Software. The game’s last home was Warners, where it was under a progress-to-production stipulation wherein the project had to shoot before a certain time or else the rights reverted back to Id Software. Enda McCallion is still attached to direct, and John Wells and Lorenzo di Bonaventura are producing.
