DOOM to get ‘reboot’

Rumours have it that DOOM is getting a reboot! Well, can you really call it a reboot? Traditionally the ‘series reboot’ has been instigated as a creative choice by the director, allowing him/her to explore parts of the canon that a linear chronology would forbid. In this instance, however, it seems more like a move to bury a single very bad movie that everyone would rather just forget ever existed.

If the rumours are to be believed The DOOM reboot is only in the very early stages of development with Universal still script-hunting. We can only hope this time they actually stick to the fairly simple plot of the game: gateway to hell opens on Mars. Demons ensue.
