id Wants Another Doom Movie

id Software CEO Todd Hollenshead expressed interest in producing another feature film adaptation of the developer's Doom shooter series, the developer told Kotaku.

"Personally I'd like to do another Doom movie, I thought working with it was a blast," Hollenshead said. "There are some lessons we learned. The best way to do things better is to get the experience."

Doom was first brought to the big screen by director Andrzej Bartkowiak and Universal Pictures in 2005. The film, which starred Karl Urban and wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, was released to mostly negative reviews and fan backlash following significant changes to the core mythology of the hell-spawn shooter series.

"We'll see what happens when we get further along in development of [Doom 4] and there's more buzz and we share more about what the game will be about," Hollenshead added,

The CEO further noted that the decision would fall to Doom distributor Universal, which owns the rights to the movie and any possible sequels. "As the buzz meter starts to go up that may kind of kick start the guys over at Universal."

    Just give us 90 minutes of FPS-sequence and we'll be happy.

      That was the dumbest goddamn thing I've ever seen -- when it got to that point, the thought actually occurred to me that I could be playing Doom 3 and likely enjoying it a lot more than the film I was watching.

      Actually, strike that. It was awesome!

        It felt like one of those lame shooters on a rail or one of those indoor cart rides at amusement parks where they turn the cart to face something which jumps out at you.

          IIRC, he didn't circle-strafe around corners, either. It's like he was playing with a keyboard- straight, straaaaight, stop, turn right, *AHH A MONSTER!*

            How great would it have been if he was bunny hopping?

              Don't forget tea-bagging his victims.
