It looks like the long-running horror franchise The Omen is heading back to the big screen, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that 20th Century Fox is in development on a prequel to the original movie titled The First Omen.
The site reports that Antonio Campos (Christine) is in talks to direct the project, which will be produced by David S. Goyer and Kevin Turen through their Phantom Four production company. The script has been penned by Ben Jacoby (Bleed).
The Omen was released in 1976 and starred Gregory Peck as an American Ambassador who adopts a child, Damien, who turns out to be the Antichrist. The film spawned three sequels and a 2006 remake, as well as a TV series in 1995 and the new A&E show Damien, which premiered in March.
