The Rock confirms that the Doom movie is in post-production, hints that his Sarge is the star and pleases everyone by triumphantly announcing the first big-screen appearance of the BFG.

In an appearance on the Daily Show with John Stewart last night, Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock), was cornered into answering some Doom questions. The movie star, there to promote his latest movie Be Cool, was repeatedly asked about future projects and admitted that the Doom movie has now completed shooting and is in post production and expected to be in U.S. theatres by August 2005. The Rock will also be starring in the SpyHunter game-to-movie effort.

The Rock was quick to hint that his character, currently known as Sarge will be the leading character by unleashing an enigmatic, I'm the one statement. In most references to the movie, actor Karl Urban of LoTR, Riddick and Bourne Supremacy notoriety, is mentioned as the lead and is billed as John Grimm. According to the plot, a Special Ops squadron, led by Grimm, answers a distress call from a science lab on the planet Olduvai (not Mars), their investigation reveals that a series of mutant beings are systematically killing off the population there.

It is rumored that The Rock's Sarge character will be a member of the team and his character seems vague enough to be the nameless marine of the game. Mr. Johnson however, seems happy to spread confusion as in other interviews he has hinted that his role may include that of the leader of hell. Oddly enough, he has also suggested that his evil side will be a surprise in the movie, so he is either ruining the premise or simply trying to confuse everyone even further.

The director of the movie is the Polish born Andrzej Bartkowiak better known for his cinematography work in movies such as Thirteen Days, The Devil's Advocate and U.S. Marshalls as well as for directing Cradle 2 the Grave. Bartkowiak's name is a stylistic guarantee of sorts although we have to admit we are just happy to see Uwe Boll is in no way associated with the project.

Another detail about the Doom movie revealed by Johnson is that it will be rated R, a relief for fans of the game, concerned by recent rumors claiming that the movie would carry a PG-13 rating.

Finally The Rock also mentioned that the eh... Bio-Force Gun will also appear in the movie and he said he was pleased with the amount of explosions and total devastation present in the movie, claiming it would be enough to keep even the most demanding fans of the game happy.

Following the latest news about the movie we cannot help but become concerned regarding the rushed feeling we are getting about the Doom movie. If shooting is already over and the movie has a planned August 2005 release we may be looking at a world speed record for putting a big budget production together. We are however, still optimistic since our contacts have informed us that Uwe Boll's name is still not appearing anywhere near the credits.

...this movie is going to suck. It's not even set on Mars, Hell has nothing to do with this (apparently, affected by zombies)...and The Rock is the main actor....don't get me wrong, he is a fantastic wrestler, and has a LITTLE acting talent, but for this role?....

You know, its pretty lame to judge movie before even seeing it. Oh, i do agree that its just going to be those hollywood conveyorbelt line action film, but sometimes they do what they are designed to do, entertain. When i want to watch real quality movies, i watch Seven Samurai's and old Star Wars trilogy.

Ummm, no Doom isn't the fastest movie put together and released IIRC, Million Dollar Baby took exactly 48 days to shoot and two months to get ready for theatres, so that it would be ready for the Oscars.

Hmmm given what I've read, I'm not all that convinced with this one.

BTW I don't know where everyone gets the impression he's playing the hero.

"I'm playing the commanding officer who, without ruining it for everyone, turns bad, which is great. I'm so excited about that movie, I'll tell you why. Number one, it's my first rated-R movie and it's a very unapologetic rated-R movie. Not only that, but the monsters are real, they're not CGI. They're made by Stan Winston who did Jurassic Park and Predator and all that. So the monster's got weight and when they’re in a scene they're like Aliens! I get to transform and become, I'm going to tell you this right now, the BMFOTP. Know what that means? It means the baddest mother****er on the planet."
If I was to make an educated guess, I'd say he's the cyberdemon. (Quite likely once you realise they are making pinky be a bloke in a wheelchair.)

I think it's going to suck simply because it's not a doom movie it's a resident evil movie...zombies?....WTF? and BioForceGun...? I'll judge when it comes out as a different movie though....ha...

Heh, so I'm not the only one to think it looks more like a RE with some futuristic guns than
a Doom movie... :p

... I checked the screenshot again, not even futuristic guns, they're G36 except the one in the middle that seems to be either futuristic, either an M79 :p

I played all of the RE series and I liked every one of them! I saw all of the RE movies and man they rocked! But I played doom2 (pc) and 3 Xbox. I didn’t like any of them there are a lot of FPS games out there that are ten times better! About the movie first of all I hate that actor he always tries to look SOOOOO COOL in his movies I think this movie is gonna be like mission impossible {oh look at me i am soo cool i can fly!}.

The movie Phone Booth only took 12 days to film and to be honest it was a damn good movie.
