Fox Greenlights a Prequel to ‘The Omen’

Fox has tapped indie filmmaker Antonio Campos (2016’s “Christine”) to helm a prequel to “The Omen,” the studio’s 1976 horror classic.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Campos’ “Omen” prequel comes from a script by freshman screenwriter Ben Jacoby (“Bleed”). David Goyer (“Batman v Superman”) and Kevin Turen (“That Awkward Moment”) are producing under their Phantom Four banner.

The original “Omen,” directed by Richard Donner (“Superman: The Movie”), introduced audiences to Damien, the horrific 5-year old that also was the embodiment of the Antichrist, and his suspicious father, played by Gregory Peck. The film spawned two sequels and a series of novels, in addition to the 2006 remake starring Liev Schreiber.

No release date has been set for Fox’s “Omen” prequel.
