The Omen may be 40 years old this year, but it's somehow become the hottest property in horror in 2016. In addition to A&E's sequel series Damien (which, truth be told, isn't garnering the kind of ratings the network probably hoped for), an Omen prequel movie is now in the works with indie darling Antonio Campos -- whose 2016 biopic Christine, about tragic Florida TV reporter Christine Chubbuck, was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at this year's Sundance Film Festival -- attached to direct.  Fittingly titled The First Omen, the film is being produced by David Goyer for 20th Century Fox, the studio behind both the original film and its three less-successful sequels, including the made-for-tv stinker Omen IV: The Awakening.

Campos was most recently behind the camera for the film Christine. That movie is about the on-air suicide by television reporter Christine Chubbuck. The Omen grossed an inflation-adjusted $240 million. It also led three follow-ups: Damien: The Omen Part II (1978), Omen III: The Final Conflict (1981) and the made-for-tv Omen IV: The Awakening (1991). The original movie was remade »
