Universal Reloads BFG for ‘Doom’ Reboot

Video game adaptations are still hot as ever, so why wouldn’t a studio revisit their archives for a potential reboot?

Our friends at What’s Playing are reporting that Universal Pictures is out to writers to pen Doom, a 3-D redo of the 2005 adaptation that starred Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson as a Space Marine sent to investigate strange events at a research facility on a distant planet but find themselves at the mercy of genetically enhanced killing machines.

The site adds that Universal has always been keen on doing another Doom movie sometime, and that the success of Paramount’s G.I Joe : Rise of Cobra piqued their interest even more.

Think they can get it right this time?
