Universal’s Doom Reboot Unveils Suitably Gory Set Photos

It’s going on 13 years since the original live-action Doom movie, and it seems the Powers That Be over at Universal are ready for another roll of the dice.

Production on Tony Giglio’s remaining just wrapped in Bulgaria, with Amy Manson (Once Upon A Time) taking point as the film’s de facto lead. She’ll battle demonic forces on Mars, and at least based on some newly-unveiled set photos, it appears all hell has broken loose on the Red Planet.

First spotted by Screen Rant, Giglio recently shared a couple of suitably gory pics from the Doom set, in which you’ll see a fairly nondescript hallway drenched in blood. There’s also a shot of Manson suited, booted and ready to kick demonic ass, though whether she stands a chance against the oncoming demons remains to be seen.

Doom Remake Set Photos Focus on the Gore

Doom Remake Set Photos Focus on the Gore
Many Doom fans were upset to learn that the reboot will be a straight to video release, but it looks like the video game adaptation will be a bloodbath, as evidenced by new set photos. Doom is one of the most iconic first-person shooters of all time, and to many, it was and still is the best. However, the first film adaptation was seen as blasphemy by loyal Doom fans. The new adaptation is going to forget the events of the initial movie and go for a more faithful adaptation to the beloved game.

Tony Giglio (Under Siege) directed the Doom remake and now that production has officially wrapped, he took to Twitter to share some very bloody hallways. He captioned the new photos by saying, "nothing to see here..." That seems to be a massive understatement from all of the blood that has been shed in the pictures. Doom

Doom reboot will go direct-to-video, director and lead actress revealed

Last week it was revealed on social media that Universal Pictures is planning a second attempt at adapting the iconic video game series Doom, and now thanks to Dread Central we have some new information on the proposed reboot.

Firstly, the site reports that the new film is being developed by Universal 1440 Entertainment, Universal’s non-theatrical division, which means the film will be a straight-to-video / VOD release.

Meanwhile, Tony Giglio is set to direct the movie, while actress Amy Manson has also been cast as the film’s lead.

Production on Doom is slated to begin “in the near future”, so presumably we can expect to hear more news about the project soon.

Universal’s first attempt at adapting the first person shooter classic was released in 2005, and starred Karl Urban, Rosamund Pike and Dwayne Johnson. It tanked at the box office, and received negative reviews from critics.

The Next Doom Movie Will Feature A Female Lead

Even if you aren’t exactly a superfan of the Doom franchise, you have to acknowledge its place in video game history. Had you been around in the 1990’s, then odds are you played one of its earliest installments on a PC at some point. If not, then perhaps you’ve at least familiarized yourself with one of the more modern offerings, as the series remains a staple in the horror genre.

Of course, a game that’s able to boast such a great level of popularity and influence was naturally going to receive a cinematic adaptation before long. And that came in 2005 in the form of the theatrically released Doom, which starred the likes of Karl Urban and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m not the lover of this franchise in the way that I am with the likes of Resident Evil and Silent Hill,

Doom Reboot Reportedly Has A Director And Lead

Doom Reboot Reportedly Has A Director And Lead
The world just learned of the existence of a Doom reboot just a handful of days ago, and now Dread Central has an alleged scoop from some unnamed sources. The film will be directed by Tony Giglio (Timber Falls, S.W.A.T. Under Siege) and that Once Upon A Time actress Amy Manson is set to play the film's lead.

It's also been revealed the project is being helmed by Universal's non-film division Universal 1440 Entertainment, which appears to mean the project is going straight to DVD or a streaming platform. That makes sense, and would certainly explain why we've heard next to nothing about it until now. Are you more, or less excited for this film now that you've read all this?

Sony Crackle to Develop Sci-Fi Series Based on ‘Heart of Darkness’ (Exclusive)
Sony’s Crackle is developing a series reimagining of the Joseph Conrad novel “Heart of Darkness,” Variety has learned exclusively.

‘The Saint’ VOD Review

Stars: Adam Rayner, Eliza Dushku, Roger Moore, James Remar, Thomas Kretschmann, Enrique Murciano, Sammi Hanratty, Kirsty Mitchell, Yani Gellman, Greg Grunberg, Beatrice Rosen, Ian Ogilvy, Alec Secareanu, Sonalii Castillo, Christopher Villiers | Written by Jesse Alexander, Tony Giglio | Directed by Ernie Barbarash

An expanded version of a failed TV pilot, whose first trailer debuted waaay back in 2013, this iteration of The Saint is already on the backfoot before it begins. You have a rejected pilot, “fixed” with reshoots, Twice(!) – which is why Ernie Barbarash is now the credited director and not Simon West (Con Air, Tomb Raider) who is now credited as Executive Producer instead – and featuring not one but Two previous Saints in the cast, Roger Moore and Ian Ogilvy, just to remind you of how good both actors were in the role… Oh, and then there’s memories of the Val Kilmer movie to sour the audiences view

‘S.W.A.T.: Under Siege’ VOD Review

Stars: Sam Jaeger, Adrianne Palicki, Michael Jai White, Matthew Marsden, Kyra Zagorsky, Ty Olsson, Olivia Cheng, Zahf Paroo, Aren Buchholz, Lisa Chandler, Mike Dopud, Monique Ganderton, Dakota Guppy, Marci T. House | Written by Jonas Barnes, Keith Domingue | Directed by Tony Giglio

An in-name only sequel- it’s been six years since the last S.W.A.T. movie, Firefight, and you Really don’t have to have seen the previous film – or the 2003 original – to appreciate this, the third film in the S.W.A.T. franchise. Yet another take on the Assault on Precinct 13 story model, S.W.A.T.: Under Siege sees a Swat compound come under fire from an international terrorist who relentlessly and violently pursues a mystery man who was apprehended by Seattle Swat after a raid went horribly wrong.

So why now? Why make another S.W.A.T. film now? Maybe it’s because CBS are planning a new TV iteration of the classic series,

‘Hard Target 2′ Review

Stars: Scott Adkins, Robert Knepper, Rhona Mitra, Temuera Morrison, Ann Truong, Adam Saunders, Jamie Timony, Peter Hardy, Sean Keenan, Troy Honeysett | Written by Matt Harvey, Dominic Morgan, George Huang | Directed by Roel Reine

Take one classic 90s action movie, featuring one of the most iconic action heroes of the decade and directed by a king of the genre. Throw in a two-decade wait and a British action star who is almost single-handedly keeping the old-school Dtv vibe alive (and doing a damn good job of it may I add); and you have Hard Target 2.

Twenty-three years. Has it really been that long? I remember the hype around John Woo’s Hard Target – you couldn’t pick up an issue of Impact Magazine for a least a year beforehand without some mention of the film amongst its pages. It’s actually very surprising that we didn’t get a sequel sooner.

‘The Man With the Iron Fists 2′ VOD Review

Stars: RZA, Dustin Nguyen, Eugenia Yuan, Carl Ng, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Schnitrnunt Busarakamwong, Grace Huang, Pim Bubear, Sahajak Boonthanakit, Andrew Lin, Kowit Wattanakul, Charlie Ruedpokanon, Nophand Boonyai, Simon Yin | Written by John Jarrell, RZA | Directed by Roel Reine

I was a huge fan of the first film in what now looks to be a burgeoning new martial arts film franchise. The Man With the Iron Fists was everything I love about martial arts movie and was obviously a labour of love for its star and Wu_Tang Clan member RZA. Sadly, despite the out-pouring of love from wuxia fans and internet geeks like myself, the film did not perform as well as I’m sure the studio would’ve liked. But that doesn’t stop the franchise from continuing as a direct-to-market series – and so we have The Man With the Iron Fists 2.

Start your engines – ‘Death Race 4′ revs up!

It’s not often we run news stories here on Nerdly but when it involves one of my favourite writer/directors working today there’s absolutely no way I’m not sharing this with you guys. So what’s the news?

Well Tony Giglio, director of one of the best films of last year – Extraction (think of it as the American successor to The Raid) – has returned, as screenwriter, to the franchise which he managed to successfully reboot on DVD and, with his script for the third film, surpass the original movie… I’m talking Death Race. And more specifically Death Race 4.

I’ll let this image, which Giglio tweeted earlier today, do all the talking… And it goes without saying I’m super-excited to see where the franchise is headed after the amazing third film.

Phil’s ‘Ten Best’ Films of 2013

Well it’s that time of year again, end of year/best of list time! If you’ve been reading this site – or Blogomatic3000 – for a while now you’ll know my tastes are generally a little different from the more mainstream sites and so my Top 10′s are too! And whilst there have been plenty of “worthy” titles to get cinephiles excited, I’ve been finding a wealth of movie gold in the direct to DVD market (my cinematic home).

The usual disclaimers apply to this Top 10 – this is a list of my favourite films of the year, the films that got me excited and the ones that remained with me after the credits rolled…

1) Odd Thomas

Official Synopsis: In a California desert town, a short-order cook with clairvoyant abilities encounters a mysterious man with a link to dark, threatening forces.

‘Extraction’ Review

Stars: Jon Foo, Falk Hentschel, Vinnie Jones, Joanne Kelly, Sean Astin, Danny Glover | Written and Directed by Tony Giglio

The first studio produced feature film made specifically for the internet – in this particular case the Sony-owned Crackle.com – Extraction comes from writer/director Tony Giglio – a man whose work, as long time readers of my reviews will know, I am a huge fan of… Previously responsible for scripting the likes of Chaos (which he also directed), Death Race 2 and 3 and the fantastic backwoods slasher Timber Falls, I have yet to be disappointed by his genre work. Hell, he managed to reboot the Death Race franchise on DVD and, with its third film, surpass the original movie! Now to some that might sound sycophantic to some but in all honesty I have yet to be disappointed by the man’s work…

His latest film, Extraction, follows U.S. Black Ops
