(RUMOR) - Does Doom Smell What The Rock Is Cooking?

Is The Rock Doomed? No, it’s not what it seems. He’s doing alright for himself, thankuverymuch. However, yesterday The Artist Formerly Known As Dwayne Johnson popped into town and we pitched along to ask him some questions. Frankly, after he flew all that way, it would have been rude not to. Naturally, we asked him about his next project, Spy-Hunter, a computer game adaptation in which he’ll play a secret agent who drives a seriously souped-up, weapons-packed vehicle (think KITT from Knight Rider if he’d subscribed to Guns & Ammo). And it was then that he dropped the bombshell: there’s another videogame flick just itching to smell what The Rock’s cooking. "Spy-Hunter’s great. John Woo’s on board to direct. The script should come in, in about two weeks," The Rock told Empire. "I’m very, very excited about that. It’s supposed to be shot in Prague and Amsterdam, but…" But? "You know how movie-making is. If we have to push it because of the weather and the Christmas vacation, then I’ll probably take another movie with Universal called Doom." Well, knock us down with a feather. If you’re a gamer, and you haven’t played or heard of Doom, then frankly you should be banned from going near a joypad ever again. One of the most successful videogame franchises ever, Doom is the king of the first-person shoot-’em-ups, an incredibly tense and violent series of games set on an alien base in which one man (it’s always one man, isn’t it?) must make his way through labyrinthine levels to freedom, all the while shooting his way through hordes of nasty space beasties. The film, from early reports, will be a lot more complex than that, with interesting innovations like, you know, a plot. And characters. So, Mr. The Rock, what can you tell us about it? Not much, as it turns out. At least, not without triggering an almighty spoiler. So we’ve bleeped out the offending bits. "It’s based on the game. Where, without giving the movie away, I play the ultimate [censored]." Wow. The ultimate [censored]? "Yeah, it’ll be great. But you don’t know I’m [censored]. Without giving the movie away." Still, either way gamers will be in Rock nirvana. The game-to-movie tree hasn’t been laden with treasures thus far, but with The Rock’s undoubted star power and charisma (not to mention that freaky arched eyebrow) driving Doom or Spy Hunter (and maybe both if schedules permit), the trend could finally be bucked. Seems like The Rock may not be so Doomed after all…
