The Omen Being Remade Again

The Omen Being Remade Again20th Century Fox is prepping to unleash everyone's favorite little antichrist, Damien Thorn, onto the masses as apparently another remake is on its way in addition to the previously announced "Damien" TV series. Read on for everything you need to know.

The news comes from Bloody Disgusting, who are reporting that Fox is working with Platinum Dunes to develop a second remake based upon the David Seltzer tale of a little boy with the whole world in his demonic hands.

John Moore directed the insipid 2006 remake (that had a strange fascination with the color red) starring Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles, and Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick, but let's just forget that all happened, mmkay?

The Omen, from writer David Seltzer and director Richard Donner, starred Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as parents whose son dies at birth and instead secretly adopt an orphan whose mother died at the same time. Only they eventually learn that the child, Damien (played by Harvey Spencer Stephens), is the Antichrist.

Hands down Swann Nambotin, who played Victor in The Returned (Les revenants), gets my vote to play Damien.
