How to make a Doom Movie that will Surprise Everyone and Fans Might Watch  
1. Play through the game, write down what happens. This is your storyboard - don't fuck with it.
2. Adapt the storyboard to your script.
3. Notice that there is no dialogue, nor shots from anywhere other than first-person. Let the marine grunt; maybe have some pan-outs from far away.
4. You're thinking about fucking with it - stop it, you idiot.
5. Get Jean-Jacques Annaud to make it like a first-person version of The Bear, but with about a thousand times more violence.
6. Win a Palmes D'or at Cannes - surprise the shit out of everybody.
7. Profit Handsomely.

Don't do what this guy did. What an idiot.

Are you talking about the first DOOM? The one where you fight all of 10 different monsters, 2367 times?

I think it would take some serious adaptation for that to be made interesting, even as an art film.

Let's say the franchise, then.

I don't know man. I agree in principle certainly, but a first-person movie? Hmm.

Have you ever seen The Bear? It's a movie that should work in principle that I am consistently amazed is any good at all.
