While details on the new Doom movie are being kept under wraps, we do know that it is being produced by Universal’s non-theatrical division Universal 1440 Entertainment, with Tony Giglio (Timber Falls, Extraction, Chaos) directing and Amy Manson (Once Upon a Time) and Luke Allen-Gale (Dominion) starring in the cast.
Universal’s first attempt at bringing Doom to the big screen came in 2005, with Andrzej Bartkowiak directing a cast that included Karl Urban, Dwayne Johnson and Rosamund Pike. It was met with a negative reception from fans a critics and bombed at the box office with just $56 million worldwide from a $60 million budget.
