Former “The Walking Dead” showrunner Glen Mazzara is set to pen “Damien,” a follow-up to the original 1976 horror classic “The Omen,” for Lifetime and Fox Television Studios.
The new drama, it’s unclear what form it will take at present, essentially ignores the events of the sequels in favor of its own take.
In the new version, Damien Thorn is now an adult haunted by his past. He is soon faced with a series of macabre events and must finally face his true destiny: he is the Antichrist.
Mazzara (“The Shield”) will pen the script and executive produce alongside Ross Fineman (“Lights Out”). “Damien” marks a shift way from the female-skewing fare Lifetime has become known for.
