20th Century Fox and Platinum Dunes are teaming again for a second reboot of 1976 horror classic “The Omen” which is in very early stages of development.
No filmmakers have been attached at this time. Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles starred in the John Moore-directed 2006 remake.
The news comes a month after it was revealed that Lifetime is developing a TV series adaptation of the original movie, with former “Walking Dead” showrunner Glen Mazzara writing the pilot script and executive producing.
That series essentially ignores the “Omen” sequels, opting to explore a now adult Damien Thorn who is haunted by his turbulent past and coming to grips with the fact that he is actually the Antichrist.
