“Merlin” actor Bradley James has scored the title role in “Damien,” the straight-to-series drama sequel/reboot to the horror film franchise “The Omen”.
Shekhar Kapur (“Elizabeth”) will helm and executive produce the first episode which essentially ignores the previous sequels. In this version, Damien Thorn (James) has now grown up. He is still haunted by his past and must now come to terms with his true destiny – that he is the Antichrist, the most feared man throughout the ages.
Fox TV Studios will produce the six-episode series which is slated to premiere in 2015. Glen Mazzara penned and will executive produce the show.
