Video game adaptation Doom wrapped principal photography at Prague’s Barrandov Studios on 28 January and is concluding work with a reduced unit this week, unit publicist Geoff Freeman told Screendaily.com. “Filming went very well and I hope we do justice to the video game,” he said. The film is tied in with the release of the Doom 3 computer game and is set to open in North America on 5 August. Andrzej Bartkowiak (Romeo Must Die, Exit Wounds) reportedly replaced veteran video director Enda McCallion early on as director of the $70m film. Bartkowiak and DoP Tony Pierce-Roberts shot virtually all the scenes in the Prague studios, with Czech crews handling sound and cameras. John Farhat supervised visual effects at Barrandov, but most visual effects will be added now that principal filming has wrapped. Terminator franchise veteran Stan Winston is handling creature effects. Starring Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson, Doom is a co-production by Di Bonaventura Pictures, John Wells Pictures, Stillking Films, Universal Studios and Warner Bros. Universal Pictures will distribute. Bartkowiak has been announced to direct Hannibal Pictures Escobar, about the rise and fall of Colombian cocaine drug lord Pablo Escobar.
