Video game movies have not exactly been considered critical darlings throughout their history, however, this hasn't stopped film studios from taking chances on these types of movies. Already this year, there have been two films based on video games released in the Alicia Vikander led Tomb Raider and the Dwayne Johnson led Rampage, with more planned in upcoming years including a rebooted Doom film.
Danish actress and singer/songwriter, Nina Bergman, announced on Twitter recently that she will be working on the next Doom film from Universal Pictures and that it will be shooting in Bulgaria. "Wow I’m doing the next Doom movie w Universal Pictures! I just signed all the paperwork I get to go back to Bulgaria again and work with some of my favorite people This movie w a super cool Director AND my new record coming out, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world," Bergman wrote.

The iconic video game Doom was first released in 1993 and received a film adaptation starring Dwayne Johnson, Karl Urban and Rosamund Pike in 2005. The film was largely panned by critics, yielding a 19% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 131 reviews.
Details on Universal Pictures' Doom revival remain largely scarce as the studio has yet to make any official announcements regarding the project. More details are expected to come as the project moves closer to production.
