DOOM NOT AT UNIVERSAL YET
Contradicting last Friday's word from the Hollywood trades, id Software's Todd Hollenshead tells HomeLAN Fed that the rights to the Doom movie are not owned by Universal Pictures yet.
'The movie rights have reverted to id, as Warner's option period expired. However, we remain a 'free agent' at this time and multiple studios are interested in the project,' says Hollenstead. 'The team of John Wells (ER, et. al.) and Lorenzo DiBonaventura (The Matrix, et. al.) that has been working on the project for over a year will remain affiliated with the Doom movie. The studio question at this point primarily involves the financing.'
The story, based on the video game 'Doom 3,' is set at a Mars space station, where an aerospace conglom is conducting secret experiments when something unleashes a demonic force that threatens to overtake the facility.
