Indie filmmaker Antonio Campos (“Simon Killer”) is in negotiations to direct a prequel to the famed supernatural horror thriller “The Omen” at 20th Century Fox.
The Richard Donner-directed original starred Gregory Peck as an ambassador who comes to believe that his five-year-old son may be the living embodiment of the Antichrist.
Titled “The First Omen,” the prequel is being penned by Ben Jacoby but specifics are being kept under wraps. It will be the first prequel in the franchise which has scored three film sequels, a remake, and a currently airing TV sequel.
David Goyer and Kevin Turen will produce the film through their Phantom Four company.
