As we learned last year, Universal was prepping a brand new, direct-to-video adaptation of the Doom video game franchise, and today brings all the info we’ve been waiting for!
For starters, it’s titled Doom: Annihilation, presented by Universal 1440 Entertainment, the production arm of Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Described as an “intense action-packed” all-new installment, the movie will be released in Fall 2019.
“The all-new film builds upon the legacy of the franchise, whose origins derived from the popular first-person shooter video game franchise, Doom.”
Doom: Annihilation, written and directed by Tony Giglio (S.W.A.T.: Under Siege), follows a group of space marines as they respond to a distress call from a base on a Martian moon, only to discover it’s been overrun by demonic creatures who threaten to create Hell on Earth.
The film stars Amy Manson (”Atlantis”), Dominic Mafham (Ophelia), Luke Allen-Gale (“Dominion”) and Nina Bergman (The Car: Road to Revenge).
Lorenzo Di Bonaventura (Bumblebee) and John Wells (“Animal Kingdom”) executive produced, with producers including Jeffery Beach (Jarhead 3: The Siege), Phillip Roth (Death Race: 4 Beyond Anarchy) and Ogden Gavanski (Cult of Chucky).
