DOOM Movie Coming Together

With a new director, and actors being named, the DOOM movie finally takes shape.

Sept. 15, 2004


Karl Urban is on quite a roll lately, coming fresh off playing the assassin in the summer blockbuster "The Bourne Supremacy," he is now being cast to star in the Universal studios game-to-movie adaptation of DOOM.


Urban will take on the part of John Grimm, leader of a special ops team around which the DOOM movie will revolve. When dealing with alien demons, he is forced to cross paths with the organization responsible for his parents' deaths.


Recently, Andrzej Bartkowiak, who was previously in charge of Jet Li's latest action movie "Cradle 2 the Grave," was brought on the project as director.


Urban, of New Zealand descent, was also one of the leading roles alongside Vin Diesel in "The Chronicles of Riddick," but probably got his biggest break starring in two of the Lord Of The Rings movies, as "Eomer," the breakaway leader of the Riders Of Rohan.


Production for DOOM should kick off at the end of October and the projected release date for the movie is set for August 5 2005, which coincides with the one year anniversary of DOOM 3.
