The Rock Will Not Star In DOOM

The Rock will not play the central role in the forthcoming Doom movie, id Software reps confirmed over the weekend, although it's possible that he will figure in some way. Speaking at QuakeCon during a Q&A session, id staff commented on recent reports concerning Dwayne Johnson aka The Rock's involvement, which originated with UK film magazine Empire. According to reps, he will not play Doomguy, but it is possible that he could take on the role of a Sergeant if he does come on board - although, as reported at the time, that all depends on whether the John Woo-helmed adaptation of the Spy-Hunter game is pushed back or not. id reps also confirmed that the movie script is almost finished, but very little other work has been done yet. The developer is reportedly happy with it at this stage though - we just hope it's a bit better than the infamous Doom comic that we found in our id Anthology box sets in the late 90s. The pain still burns inside us. Meanwhile, QuakeCon attendees were also brought up to date on some other aspects of Doom III's continued development. According to reports, the Software Development Kit (SDK) is due a few weeks after the game's first patch (although who knows when that will arrive), the Linux server is done and the client is due soon, the Mac port isn't finished and has no publisher attached right now, and the Doom III Xbox is due "when it's done". No surprises there.
