Production on Tony Giglio’s remaining just wrapped in Bulgaria, with Amy Manson (Once Upon A Time) taking point as the film’s de facto lead. She’ll battle demonic forces on Mars, and at least based on some newly-unveiled set photos, it appears all hell has broken loose on the Red Planet.
First spotted by Screen Rant, Giglio recently shared a couple of suitably gory pics from the Doom set, in which you’ll see a fairly nondescript hallway drenched in blood. There’s also a shot of Manson suited, booted and ready to kick demonic ass, though whether she stands a chance against the oncoming demons remains to be seen.

Story-wise, there are precious few details currently available for Universal’s rebooted Doom movie, but considering it’s being angled as a straight-to-video release, we imagine Giglio and his team are keeping things on the straight and narrow: blasters, demons, and a whole lot of blood.
Either way, it’s all but certain that the studio’s live-action reimagining will be buoyed by the runaway success of Bethesda’s own Doom reboot, which stripped away all of the superfluous story and game mechanics that defined recent installments – not to mention those scrapped plans for a Call of Duty-esque sequel – back in 2016 to focus on what makes Doom so special: fast and furious gunplay that’s built around Doomguy, a one-man wrecking ball capable of wiping out an entire hierarchy of bloodthirsty demons with nothing but grit, determination, and a sweet arsenal of weapons. Perhaps Amy Manson will take on a similar role?
