Despite having been officially announced by id Software, Universal has decided to move forward with its [i]Doom[/i] movie adaptation. The producers have announced the arrival of a new director for the project, Polish director and former cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak. Bartkowiak’s resume is quite impressive, with such films as [i]Romeo Must Die[/i] and [i]Exit Wounds[/i] to his name. The previous director, Enda McCallion, left the film for “personal reasons,” according to [i]Variety[/i] magazine.
The film is currently slated for a 2006 release, and though no official casting announcements have been made, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has reportedly been offered the lead.
