A Second "The Omen" Reboot In The Works

27 June 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

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.

27 June 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

20th Century Fox and Platinum Dunes are teaming up for yet another reboot of the 1976 horror classic The Omen, which comes just eight years after the studio's The Omen remake in 2006.

No filmmakers have been attached at this time, with Bloody-Disgusting reporting that 20th Century Fox and Platinum Dunes are still in the very early stages of development.

The news comes just over a month after we reported that the Lifetime Channel is developing a TV adaptation of the original movie, with Glen Mazzara, a former showrunner on AMC's The Walking Dead, writing the pilot script and executive producing. The series centers on Damien Thorn, the young boy from the original movie, who is now an adult and haunted by his turbulent past. He must come to grips with the fact that he is actually the Antichrist.

Richard Donner directed the 1976 original version of The Omen, which starred Gregory Peck »

The Omen Being Remade Again

27 June 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

20th Century Fox is prepping to unleash everyone's favorite little antichrist, Damien Thorn, onto the masses as apparently another remake is on its way in addition to the previously announced "Damien" TV series. Read on for everything you need to know.

The news comes from Bloody Disgusting, who are reporting that Fox is working with Platinum Dunes to develop a second remake based upon the David Seltzer tale of a little boy with the whole world in his demonic hands.

John Moore directed the insipid 2006 remake (that had a strange fascination with the color red) starring Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles, and Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick, but let's just forget that all happened, mmkay?

The Omen, from writer David Seltzer and director Richard Donner, starred Gregory Peck and Lee Remick as parents whose son dies at birth and instead secretly adopt an orphan whose mother died at the same time. Only they eventually learn that the child, »

27 June 2014 10:50 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Despite being rebooted less than 10 years ago and with an upcoming television series in development, 20th Century Fox has decided that we need a new take on The Omen and will be rebooting the acclaimed horror series. Bloody Disgusting broke the news regarding the reboot that will be a co-production between Fox and Platinum Dunes. While the 2006 version from director John Moore did gross over $100 million, many disliked that it was essentially a carbon copy of the original film with minor »

Battlefield Surgery – Three Wounded War Movies

8 June 2014 9:37 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Much like that it portrays, with the war movie there is always a thin line between success and failure. When dealing with such a hefty and complex subject matter, is one best suited to going on the offensive or holding back and forming a defensive line of conservatism? When dealing with real conflict involving real people, either by historical inspiration or factual invocation, are you making a drama or an action flick?

Regardless of which route one takes, this is a genre as susceptible to mediocrity and false hope as any other. Whether it be a great battle from history rendered obsolete by caricature or a teasing of genuine, shellshock events betrayed by insensitive thriller tropes, there will always be those that fail to hit the target when victory was so surely within reach. Intention is always undermined by incompetence.

Rather than look at the worst of the crop, Cinematic »

Jai Courtney Set to Join Emilia Clarke as Kyle Reese in ‘Terminator’ Reboot

19 February 2014 1:00 PM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

The character that Michael Biehn made awesome, Anton Yelchin made dumb, and Jonathan Jackson made boring, is returning to the big screen, as Jai Courtney has been cast as human resistance leader Kyle Reese in 2015′s Terminator: Genesis. Skynet’s worst enemy has had quite a crisis of identity since Biehn nailed the nuance of the role in James Cameron’s 1984 sci-fi action masterpiece, The Terminator, and his lasting imprint on the character will insure that Courtney has some substantial boots to fill. Courtney’s slim resume may make fans of the Terminator franchise, and Reese in particular, nervous about his capturing the role. His closest competition was model-turned-actor Boyd Holbrook, who while building an increasing film profile, has similarly not had his breakout role as of yet. Nailing Kyle Reese would go a long way in helping audiences forget his wooden performance in John Moore’s A Good Day to Die Hard, an »
