Doom


1h 35m 2005

Brief Synopsis

Olduvai Research Station is a remote scientific facility on Mars where something has gone terribly wrong. All experiments have ceased, and communication has failed. The few messages that do get through are less than comforting. It's Level 5 Quarantine, and the only souls allowed in or out are the Rapid Response Tactical Squad (RRTS)--hardened Marines armed to the teeth with enough firepower to neutralize any enemy--or so they think. The researchers at this Red Planet station have unwittingly opened a door, and all hell has broken loose. A legion of nightmarish creatures of unknown origin lurks in every corner and stalks the countless rooms and tunnels of the facility, killing what few people remain. A hellish zoo of demons, Imps, Barons and Hell Knights has taken over Olduvai. And they're not giving it back without a fight. Sealing off the portal to Earth, Sarge, Reaper and their mercenary team must use every weapon at their disposal--and some they find along the way--to carry out their orders: nothing gets out alive. Unfortunately, these things never go as planned.

Miscellaneous Notes

Released in United States Fall October 21, 2005

Released in United States on Video February 7, 2006

Based on the video game "Doom 3" created by id Software and Activision vidgame, which is slated for release July 15, 2004.

Originally set up at Trimark Pictures and Todd McFarlane Entertainment. Picked up by Universal Pictures with Ivan Reitman producing. Universal's rights expired, and the picture was picked up by Columbia Pictures, whose rights also eventually expired. Warner Bros. stepped in with a progress-to-production deal, with which the studio had 15 months to put the project in front of the cameras or the rights reverted back to iD Software. Those rights expired as well, with Universal coming back on board to shoot the picture in Fall 2004. Director Enda McCallion dropped out of the project for personal reasons in early-Fall 2004, with Andrzej Bartkowiak filling the post.

Doug Liman was previously attached to direct.

Literary Sale Date 10/20/1997

Project previously in development at Columbia Pictures with Collision Entertainment.

Released in United States Fall October 21, 2005
