Romeo Must Die director working on Doom

We originally read that as "Romero", oddly.

The producers of the Doom movie have announced a new director to take charge of the project this week, according to film magazine Variety, after original director Enda McCallion decided to bow out "due to personal reasons".

With McCallion gone, the producers have apparently turned to Polish director Andrzej Bartkowiak, whose past credits include Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds and Cradle 2 the Grave.

At the moment though there isn't much else to say about the Doom movie. For all we keep hearing that it's moving up and on, we've yet to hear any casting announcements, that the script's been finalised, or anything like that.

The last we heard, at QuakeCon in August, was that The Rock - aka Dwayne Johnson - was not being tapped to play Doomguy on the big screen, but might possibly figure in some way in the final film.
