Yes, it is true - there will be a Doom movie, despite lots of speculation that it would never happen. Universal Pictures have announced on their website that the movie has gone into production and will be released August 5th next year. The set and story will be based on those of the game. Also, the movie will apparently keep the "hyper-kinetic, kamikaze style" going, and will present a "fully-realized vision of a dark and disturbing future". The movie is being produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and John Wells who are responsible for "The West Wing" and "ER" amongst others.
